2 inch scale Fowler BB1 ploughing engine - stock code 7768

A 2 inch scale Fowler BB1 ploughing engine to the Colin Tyler/John Haining design, an older engine now in need of restoration and repainting. It's come to us as part of a large collection of ploughing and digging engines and their associated equipment (including Colin Tyler's own BB1, in fine condition).

Complete, turns over freely, runs on air in a somewat desultory manner. Originally well-built, it would make a worthwhile restoration project of a rarely-modelled engine.
