2 inch scale Fowler A7 agricultural engine - stock code 10044

We sold this one to a local man last year - something of a Fowler aficionado, he's recently part-exchanged it for another model of the same marque.

On display for the last twelve months, it's in the same as-new condition as last time it was here. Pictures opposite and words below are from that time.

A finely made 2 inch scale Fowler A7 agricultural engine, painted and lined to an exhibition standard.

The silver soldered copper boiler was constructed by the engine builder and inspected on completion by Cheddar Boilers who issued a twice working pressure hydraulic certificate at that time.

Fit and finish of machined parts is excellent, the engine turns over with little sign of wear.

Mechanically and cosmetically in "ex-works" condition, we suspect it has spent its entire life on display - from the condition of the tyres it appears that they've never touched the floor!
