Default Please Help Identify Toy Vertical Steam Toys

I have two vertical toys that I would like to know more about. They both appear to be the company but one is more elaborate thatn the other. The ine has the letters "E P" on the cylinder. Is it possible to get a pressure gage for the one? Thanks for everyone's help.

"EP" would indicate Ernst Plank. Nice toys!

Thanks Mike,

do you know if a reproduction pressure gage can be found, or an original?

German ebay is your best bet for an original gauge, Martin..they come up occasionally..I haven't heard of any repro ones.

Martin, on the e-bay page, type dampfmaschine in the specific searchbox on the left- the general one on the right should read,"alle kategorien" (all categories), click on, "finden" and enjoy!
