It's been display in his office during his ownership, condition now is unchanged from when the pictures opposite were taken last time it was here.
A finely made 1 1/2 inch scale Allchin traction engine to the "Royal Chester" design, unsteamed from new.
Fit and finish of the motionwork is very good, it turns over smoothly and runs well on air. The model is nicely painted in the authentic Royal Chester Agricultural Show finish applied to the prototype engine; it remains in ex-works condition.
