I'm sorry for no MFG name but it is a nice vintage steam engine model.

Looks to me that it has a DC logo faintly visible on it. That would make it a Doll & Co.

That looks like the one, with the exception that the one I expect to have in my hands next week is dry fired rather than electric. Anyone have any idea of the value of one of these? Thanks Jake!

Yes, it's a Doll 360/3 or /4 but alcohol, not "dry fired"

Looks to have very good paint underneath the dust, a good wipe-down with Ballistol is all that is needed.

Thanks for clearing up the dry versus alcohol fired issue, Nick! I don't know if the guy will have the original burner or not. I have converted my "dry" fired Jensen engines to propane with burners I have built. Much cleaner, and lots of control with the heat.

Yes, gas is the way to go to save on the paint and to keep them running at a more realistic speed. If he does have the original burner I highly recommend burning Everclear over denatured alcohol. I was getting headaches/burning eyes running my engines in the basement till I switched to Everclear. If the burner works good I use the weak MN stuff, but if it needs more heat I use my stash of the good stuff from WI. AND test the burner on a cooking tray before trying it in the engine, if overfilled they can boil over and you'll have ruined the paintwork.

Boiler does not look blued from the pictures, but if it is, be careful not to polish it off.
