2″ scale Burrell Showmans Traction Engine.

Although built a number of years ago this model is still in excellent order having seen little use by the previous owners.

Built to the ‘THETFORD TOWN’ design this model does not have the rear mounted crane of that design and currently has its canopy removed,which will come with the model.

I will be checking the model over to insure that it is in full working order and expect to renew the boiler certification, there is past boiler history with the model at present.

Unusually the model is not painted in the expected maroon with yellow wheels, instead it is nicely painted in green livery with brown wheels which still gives a pleasant finish to the model. The usual means of water feed from a crankshaft driven pump and an injector are present and cylinder lubrication is provided by a standard mechanical unit. Although built looking like a compound I suspect that it is a twin with both cylinders feed directly from the boiler. There are three speeds on the gearing which should enable the user to cope with most conditions found on a rally field even though the model is in a smaller scale. There is a single seat riding truck that is included in the sale with the model which I believe is fitted with a hand pump and water tank which i will confirm as necessary. There is currently some damage to the front wheel tyres and I expect this to have been repaired prior to sale.                                                                                                                                                                      £6995.00DSCF3643 DSCF3644 DSCF3645 DSCF3646 DSCF3647 DSCF3648 DSCF3649 DSCF3650 DSCF3651 DSCF3652 DSCF3653 DSCF3654 DSCF3655 DSCF3656 DSCF3658
