1 1/2 inch scale Case traction engine - stock code 6558

An almost complete 1 1/2 inch scale Case traction, built to the design published in "Live Steam" magazine in the 1970s. It has a commercially-built silver soldered copper boiler, supplied new in 2002 and is to a well-advanced state - the engine turns over freely. Paint scheme may be a bit of an acquired taste - best described as flamboyant.

We don't see many of these - bigger than the 1 1/2 inch scale Allchin, it will finish to make an unusual, good-sized engine. Complete with magazines featuring the construction series and a photograph album showing details of other examples of this design.

Length 31 inches

scale 1 1/2 inch & smaller
