1 inch scale "Minnie" steam roller - stock code 7983

A steam roller variant of Len Mason's popular "Minnie" traction engine design - very much rarer that its four wheeled agricultural siblings, I think this is the first one we've ever had in.

An older engine, it obviously hasn't steamed in some years, possibly not since being painted. Motion all turns over freely, with some surface rust from storage which comes off easily with Scotchbrite.
