Hi I'm Diana Becker, widow of Martin Becker who bought Coles Power Models from the original Charles Cole family. I am new to Discover Live Steam but I hope you'll bear with me. I am forced to break up this beautiful historic collection of stationary steam engines that my husband treasured, in order to get the cash to stay in my home. I've been careful over the years to keep them in a humidity and temperature stable environment to keep their condition optimal. An avid live steamer, Nick, is helping me to assess the condition and care for these engines so that they can be accurately listed and arrive to their new owner in the best shape possible. To reach Nick with questions please call 323-788-3033.
This incredible engine is not only rare and in excellent mechanical condition, but is also the same engine that was on display in the original Coles Power Models store in Oxnard, California. It's also the same engine that appears in Cole’s catalogs. All of these original Coles display and catalog engines were extremely well constructed and machined. This engine has almost no play on the main bearing. Don't let this opportunity to own a piece of live stream history pass you by!
Engine will be available to pick up in person at the Los Angeles Live Steamers spring meet on Memorial Day or any time by special arrangement.
