Weeden steam engine

Weeden Mfg. Co., founded by William N. Weeden in New Bedford, Massachusetts produced working model steam toy engines from 1884. The firm 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 Weeden steam engines in 1952.

I have a Weeden Std #1 steamboat I can't find a flywheel, stack, or stand any ideas
On Facebook are a couple of steam collectors groups, try them as well.

Good Evening, Phil,I have a Model 14 which is missing the governor and governor base. Any idea where I can find vintage replacements?
Hi Kevin, I'll forward your message to Phil. I think he purchased his parts from eBay. You can also have a look at the site, mentioned in the description above.

Greetings, I recently purchased a governor for my engine from this site and I received it in short order but unfortunately it is too large for my model. The one I need is half the size of the one I got. Can I provide any measurements or photo of what I need. Thanks for any help.
Hi Phil, I think you purchased your governor from eBay and not from this website. I'm afraid I can't help you, but you might try the link mentioned above in the text, maybe they can help you.

I have a very old weeden that I need a part for. Not sure of the model number. How can I send you a picture. Looks like a number 14 but not sure. Thanks
I'm afraid I don't sell parts Kyle, but you could look here to see if you have model nr. 14: Weeden 14 or go to the website in the description above.

I have an old steam engine that needs a couple of parts. Can you help me? I want to send a couple of pictures to help identify the model number. I think it is a very old weeden engine. Thanks
Hi Kyle, best is to first figure out which model you have. Check out the website mentioned in the above description and contact their webmaster Frank (click on 'contact me' on their homepage). Or check the listings here on the right to see if you can find your engine.

does anyone know where i can get a sight glass for a 670 steam engine
Hi, you didn't mention the manufacturer and the only 670 I could find is a model by Weeden, so I placed your question on my Weeden page.

What year was the car.no 647 made and still works good shape.
The Weeden 647 was made in the 1930s. Here's a nice 647 restoration video.

I have a Weeden electric Model 648 steam engine that stopped heating up. I used it as a live steam demonstration for the boy scouts this past weekend and it worked for a little while, then just stopped working. How do I fix this? Thanks!
Ah, that's a shame! Sounds like the electric heater just gave up the ghost.

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 .
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?
Harold - October 6, 2010
I have two weeden horizontal boiler engines; electric; non working. Does anyone know how to repair the electric heat unit?
Debbie - August 16, 2010
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.
