So this guy little guy showed up at the shop today, begging for handouts and looking for a home.
The chimney does not appear to be original to the machine to my untrained eye(also noted on the box). Otherwise it looks in passable condition. I am unsure if the box is original either but the engine fits in it well and the image is similar. I suppose I could always sell the box on eBay for $750.
It needs a thorough cleaning, and a chimney that looks more proper.
Any help from the Wise Ones is much appreciated.

I followed this one on eBay.

Glad it went to a good home Benny. 

It looks like a great early model. 

Look forward to seeing it after one of your expert “detailings”.

You may be on to something here. I found the engine pictured on the box on Mike's steam engine page.uk, but none like this little fella. The design is similar. No Neumeyer markings though.

Hello Benny,
I have such a machine in my files but I have no identification too.
I quess machine is German make, but no Neumeyer.

Regards Walter

Thanks, Walter! If the box truly did come with the engine, it is a German manufacturer. I searched Neumeyer and only found the vert that is on a thread in this forum. It is well marked and badged. This one appears never to have had a badge, or at least I can't see evidence of a badge

I was the under bidder and thought I was going to get it as nobody else was bidding, so glad it went to someone here. I also do not know the maker, but the cross/t-shaped cut-outs in the chimney made me think Schoenner.

As does the safety valve design to me. Sorry Nick, I wasn't going to bid but I also saw no one was bidding.

This is my only Schoenner, but note the cut-outs I was referring to
