Just picked up an early Bulle, serial No 995 dating it to 1920. Appears entirely original except for a modern battery holder and it works. She needs a clean but otherwise I shall leave as is.

What a nice find! Very Happy

Though I'm a bit worried about seeing such a desirable clock quite so close to the gas bottle and candles "flash steam" experimental area.  Cool

It has since been moved to a more permanent and safe position. Keeping good time. I will experiment with two batteries and a voltage regulator to keep the swing constant.

As you rightly point out that is my area for building a  Roundhouse Katie locomotive in gauge 1. Not flash steam though, just a conventional boiler.
