General information about model Mamod SE1

The mamod SE1 was first inroduced in 1936 as a Hobbies single cylinder engine with a flat base and a solid brass flywheel. It was a big smaller than the SE2 and a bit cheaper. Through the years the model got a raised base and the base mounted chimney was replaced by a boiler mounted chimney.In 1969 the model was renamed SE1A and got some modifications like a smaller safety valve.

In 1979 the model was discontinued.

Mamod SE1

I was able to buy this SE1 from Tom / Reckless_Engineer on the mamod forum. I was on the lookout for one of these for quite a while already, so when this one came along for £110 I didn't hestitate too long to buy it.



I'm not too sure the paint on this engine is original, since there's no mamod decal on it anymore. The paint on the firebox looks a bit like someone sanded it down at some time.

I might do a full restoration on this engine in the future.
