This engine was recently purchased off the french eBay for a cool £400 !! But it is worth every penny. This engine was one of the first engines Wilesco started to make, this particular engine dates back to the mid 1950’s and is one of the rarest engines made. Before you worry no it is not nuclear powered but it is still very unique as the cooling tower houses the boiler but the heater is located in the silver cylinder, and water will pass from these two vessels via a upper and lower pipe via a natural convective current. Making this the most unusual way to heat an engine. Also in steam the cooling tower will steam.

I say very “cool”…
