Steve, it doesn’t take a REALLY HUGE BUILDING to require multiples of these in series. Good engineers set them up so as the weather gets colder, they are lit and heat in sequence, to avoid wasting fuel. A public school of the vintage we’re likely to be modeling might well require three boilers.

My question is: would a buyer purchase 2-3 of these. I assume they would not be items that someone would order to put in stock to sell. If I wanted one for my new building, then they would ship me one on a flat car.

The Kewanee catalog Frank sent me shows the Type "C" came in 21 different sizes, and two versions, for burning either coal or oil. The largest, which, in HO, this one seems to represent, was the Model 770. The coal fired version weighed 31,300 pounds, or less than 16 tons.
