Wilesco have been producing the Old Smoky steam roller in this form since the mid-1960s, it was the first mobile steam engine model in the Wilesco program.

This model of a mobile steam engine was modeled after the widely used steam rollers that served in road construction until the 1950s.

The colour scheme of ‘Old Smoky’ has not changed since the 60s!

Running board, chain steering and transmission coupling are standard details of our Old Smoky. The coupling – operated by a rod to the left of the cab – enables the steam roller to also be used as a stationary steam engine. The Old Smoky with its 230cc boiler is powerful enough to pull accessories in mobile operation and drive models in stationary operation. The aluminium roller wheels of this steam roller are anodized and painted.

Our Wilesco steam roller D365 is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use. Because the Wilesco D365 has a flywheel that can be started in both directions, it can drive forwards and backwards, and the steering is controlled by a steering chain. During operation, the steam roller’s chimney smokes realistically. The running time with a charge of original Witabs dry fuel is approximately 15 minutes. When using other dry fuel brands, the running time may be slightly less.

The Old Smoky is a beautiful and highly recommended souvenir of old times for all steam engine fans. This steam engine is delivered fully assembled, making it ready to use immediately.
