In the late 19th century, model steam engine manufacturers such as Bing introduced two types of miniature steam engines: mobile (boats and locomotives) and stationary steam engines. Later, fire engines, steam rollers, wagons & traction engines began to appear. Around the mid 20th century, there were many toy firms producing toy steam engines.
