1 inch scale 80hp Case traction engine with trolley - stock code 9346

An Accucraft 1 inch scale Case traction engine, distributed in the UK by Maxitrak and complete with one of their ride-on driving trolleys.

This one has come to us as part of a large collection of engines from a long-time customer. In good condition - and unsteamed in his ownership - it appears to have had very little use from new.

An unusual design to English eyes, we've had models of Case and Minneapolis tractors from 1 inch up to 4 inch scale, always been impressed with how they've run.

The single speed transmission is constantly engaged, with drive to the wheels controlled by a lever operated clutch, with friction block acting inside the flywheel, reproduced here in the model.
