2 inch scale freelance twin cylinder traction engine - stock code 4234

A freelance twin cylinder traction engine requiring restoration - the crank is a fabrication, the component parts of which are starting to loosen which, whilst not preventing the engine running, certainly wouldn't last for long working in their current condition. On the plus side the copper boiler has had a twice pressure hydraulic test for 80psi working and is sound, the engine has decent proportions and could be turned into something quite reasonable - I would imagine, given the size cylinders, that it would have ample power to pull its driver around. Transmission is single speed with chain drive to the rear axle.

Length 35 inches
