Notes: This is a Weeden No. 702. Production was from 1935 to into the 1940s. It has a cast iron base with a tin plate fire box and brass boiler. A electrical fired boiler produces too much heat and regularily pops the relief valve. Very fast engine and the side looks like a billboard so I utilized it. This engine is the sibling to the 802 which was the same engine but alcohol fired.
