Notes: Model B-42, twin cylinder, twin boiler built approx. 1926-1930. The rarest Empire toy steam engine based on the princely price of $25 USD during the depression years. Assumption is that this was a premium toy and few were mfg. as they are very rarely seen on eBay or elsewhere. Solid cast iron base, brass engine components and nickeled brass boilers. Rivals early Jensens for robustness. Heated electrically.
