Notes: The Mighty-Mite was built by Weeden from Mongomery Wards design and sold exclusively by Montgomery Ward & Co. It is a small engine with the base being 5" x 5" and the engine is 6" tall. The base is punched out to accommodate Erector and Meccano construction sets driven from a small pulley on the flywheel. It has a Bowman type burner and more than adequate to heat the small boiler. The engine was made from 1927 until 1931 and sold for $1.50.
