2 inch scale Ruston agricultural "Lincolnshire Lad" - stock code 6459

A 2 inch scale agricultural engine, built to Reeves' Ruston inspired "Lincolnshire Lad" design - it makes up into a large, well-proportioned engine.

Unsteamed from new, this engine was completed some years ago - the boiler was commercially built, delivered new in 2004 with manufacturer's twice working pressure test and PED declaration of conformity.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by mechanical pump and injector. Single cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's gear, pole reverser, mechanical lubricator. Two speed transmission, band brake to nearside rear wheel.

The engine runs well on air - there's a clip of it running in the workshop here - and is complete with a set of drawings and material and adhesive for rubber tyring the wheels.

Length 30 inches
