1 1/2 inch scale Foster agricultural engine - stock code 10002

A 1 1/2 inch scale Foster agriculural engine - very unusual in this size we more commonly see them in 4 inch or, occasionally, 3 inch scale.

Well made and nicely painted, the engine has come to us along with several other locomotives and traction engines from a large collection.

Apparently unsteamed from new, the engine runs on air.
