IGLA no 02?

C 1948











IGLA is a name I'm not familiar with. There is an indistinct marking on the base that says "IGLA n.o. 02 Trhové Sviny". My guess is that n.o. 02 is a model number.

The engine is a simple vertical oscillating cylinder type. The boiler is a 61mm diameter x 87mm high simple pot boiler with a safety valve, whistle and dummy chimney. The burner is a single wick meths type (I'm not sure if it's original.)

Steam is fed directly to the back of the port face of a single acting oscillating cylinder, 7mm bore x 14mm stroke. The crankshaft has a 60mm diameter flywheel, which has rather distinctive curved spokes. The base is a square pressed steel type, painted green with yellow splatterings (apparently original).

Condition is generally good. It works well both on air and in steam.
