2 1/4 inch scale Foden type steam lorry - stock code 1598

A 2 1/4 inch scale steam lorry, based on the Foden overtype wagons of the early 1900s. The silver-soldered copper boiler is fed by injector and axle pump - in addition an auxiliary hand pump is fitted. The twin cylinder engine is fitted with Stephenson's valve gear and a balanced steel crank, driving through a two-speed transmission with final drive to the rear wheels by chain as in the prototype.

The lorry is 46 inches long and is easily driven from the flat bed - the controls and firebox are easily accessible on the move. Whilst large enough to pull an adult comfortably, the engine can be handled by one person. Current club boiler certificate.

This engine is being sold on behalf of a customer.
