Customers wishing to order this product are asked to
3-D Perseus Electrical Plant
At the heart of the Perseus Electrical Generation Model Steam Engine plant is the period style Dynamo which is capable of delivering in the order of 6.v d.c 3W @ 2000rpm. The Dynamo is complimented with associated key items which include a voltage regulator concealed in industrial transformer style castings, an Ammeter/Voltmeter cabinet with precision moving coil instruments displaying 0 - 3A and 0 - 16v and working Victorian style street lamp.
Reliable operation is assured by the combination of the proven Perseus steam engine and efficient 2HRFP horizontal gas fired model steam engine boiler.
Perseus is produced from precision parts each carefully made and checked to ensure reliability in service. With a Cast iron flywheel Perseus offers smooth running and the classic mill engine layout includes twin pedestal bearings to the crank shaft, oil cup lubrication to the trunk guide and substantial cast bed plate.
The proven cylinder assembly is manufactured from non-ferrous metal and so not susceptible to the corrosion sometimes encountered with iron. Both the piston and valve rods pass through adjustable glands and the slide valve is readily accessible.
In common with all of our steam engine boilers, the 2HRFP type includes a 'blow down' on the water gauge enabling the reliable monitoring of boiler water content, miniature pressure gauge and robust safety valve. The 2HRFP boiler is also equipped with a handpump and the Cotswold Heritage Surefill re-filliable gas system to enable easy replenishment from a gas cartridge and is supplied with associated filler pipe and venting tool.
As with all Cotswold Heritage model steam engine plants, the Perseus Electrical Generation steam engine plant is individually numbered issued with a certificate of authenticity, comprehensive instructions and boiler report.

If your model is in stock at the time of ordering, where possible your order is dispatched the same or next working day. If your model is in production at the time of ordering, your payment card is not charged until your model is ready for dispatch. Customers placing an order that they require to be delivered on or before a certain date are advised to contact us directly.
UK orders are usually dispatched using Parcelforce's tracked, 'express 24 hour' service. This service makes delivery on business days only and for outlying or remote parts of the UK may take longer than 24 hours.
International orders may use Parcelforce's rapid Global Express, Euro Priority Business or Global Priority services. The initial stages of the checkout will calculate shipping to your country and select the most cost efficient shipping method we use before you commit to ordering a model. These services are some of the few on the market advertised as tracked and require signature / monitor delivery.
For both UK and International parcels, we have negotiated a significant, double-digit discount with our carrier and this is passed on to the customer. Customers considering ordering more than one model are advised to email us directly to gain where possible a combined shipping quotation since the website calculates costs on each model being shipped individually.
