Weeden steam engines

Weeden Mfg. Co., founded by William N. Weeden in New Bedford, Massachusetts produced working model steam toy engines from 1884. Weeden also made steam boats, fire engines, and cars with steam as motor power. Weeden developed several ultimate rarities among clockwork tin mechanical banks, including "Ding Dong Bell" and "Japanese Ball Tosser".

The Weeden Manufacturing Company was sold to 'National Playthings' in 1942 which ended the manufacturing of model steam engines in 1952.

I have five different models in all for weeden and two Jensens .I am into collecting these toy's in my older years as I remeber in school that some ofthe guys had some and brought to show .I could never afford one as my my family was tight for money when my dad lost his legs in the Korean war .I now do a fair job of collecting and repairing still not rich but enjoy these little guy's .I also have some that are hand made as I have made a couple on an old lathe I have . Thanks for listening .
►reply: Collecting model steam engines is a fantastic hobby. I only have one 25 year old Wilesco, still steaming strong. Planning to buy more, but I think it can be pretty addictive, haha!

I have a Weeden model 49 toy steam engine. It was my grandfathers, but I know nothing else about them. It does work. Is it worth anything to collectors?
►reply: Maybe people at www.weedensteam.com can answer that question.

I recently became the owner of a Weeden steam engine that was my grandfather's. Apparently it has been exposed to the weather, as it is somewhat rusty in spots. What is the best way to clean it? Also, the PAT# I believe is 011. Do you have any idea how old it may be? I don't see any like it in the pictures on this site. Thank you for your help.
