2 inch scale Fowler A7 agricultural engine - stock code 10279

A 2 inch scale Fowler A7 agricultural engine, an older engine it's obviously steamed on many occasions in the past - it turns over very freely and runs well on air.

The engine requires work including rebushing the second shaft bearings, replacement of the pressure gauge and servicing of safety valves (which don't open) and regulator (which leaks).

The silver soldered copper boiler has had a twice pressure hydraulic test at 200psi for 100psi working, with certification issued for same.

To our eyes one of the most attractive of the agricultural engines - we had a super one of these in last November, there are pictures in the archive here. if you need inspiration.
