Many years ago one fine Christmas Santa left for me this Junior Engineer Steam Engine Model #SE-100. My brother and I put many hours on this machine spewing oil and water all over the carpets and floors of our house. The set has parts to make three engines, a walking beam, a vertical and a horizontal. For a toy it is much more precision than many of the tin versions available at the time. I never saw one anywhere in any store around here so I have no idea where my Dad found it. After many years the boiler, which is electric, no longer functions as the heating element has apparently gone bad. I have no idea or way to fix it. I found another one on ebay one day, much to my surprise, and bought it...but it's boiler no longer works either. The question for the experts on here is...any idea how to fix the boiler, or where can I find an inexpensive vertical boiler that maybe uses alcohol or something else that will work with this toy. Thanks for any information you can provide. Has anyone else here ever seen or owned one of these?
