This live steam model is one of a series offered by Mamod in England starting in the early 1970s. It is patterned after the original “pickup truck” vehicle sometimes called the Foden Wagon, and its unique rear wheels are accurately reproduced in miniature. Improvements over the original TE1 steam traction engine offered by Mamod help keep the operator’s fingers from getting burned when operating the whistle. The chain steering is controlled by the steering wheel in the cab, and allows the vehicle to navigate a present diameter circle when turned loose under steam power.
