2 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine - stock code 8016

A set of kits by Steam Traction World, including CE-marked boiler with documentation, for a 2 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine. Complete with assembly instructions, they were bought some years ago, the boxes opened and checked off against the packing lists, before being carefully packed up again.

Other projects (mainly involving two wheels with an engine) have come along in the meantime, the owner finally decided he was never going to get around to building the Burrell.

We don't see many of the 2 inch scale engines from STW - had a part-built one some years ago, then nothing until a couple of weeks ago when a complete, running example came in. On the "waiting for a bus when two come along" principle, this set of kits then arrived a couple of days later, so we're currently housing two of the things (as well as a 4 inch scale version which is currently awaiting collection)

Still in their current product range, there are more details about the Burrell on STW's sumptuously appointed website here.
