The Steam Engine

The Steam engine was the beginning of a new industrial era in the second half of the 18th century. James Watt invented the steam engine between 1768 to 1782, after this, there were various other power engines on the market. Terrific developments: In Industry, Agriculture and Traffic would follow.

WILESCO-Steam Engines are toys with tradition. They convert water (steam) into mechanical energy just like the originals. This energy can be used to drive our models.

Today turbines and petrol engines have replaced the steam engine, nevertheless they still hold the interest of young and old alike. WILESCO-Engines cater for this ageless interest in demonstrating the basic principles of changing heat and water into mechanical power. That's the reason why everybody can learn a lot from the steam engine.
