1 inch scale "Minnie" traction engine - stock code 9224

An exceptionally well-built 1 inch scale "Minnie" traction engine. The work of a talented engineer - a prolific traction engine builder now on with his fourth engine, a 6 inch scale Burrell Gold Medal tractor - it's the nicest one we've seen in some years.

In his spare time between projects he finds time to produce jewels like this beautiful V-twin engine of his own design.

The engine has been steamed on a handful of occasions - gas-fired, the boiler remains in excellent condition.

Fit and finish of machining are to a high standard throughout, paintwork is in good condition.

Complete with a nicely made glass display case with mirror back.
