3 inch scale Aveling & Porter steam tractor with driving trolley - stock code 6709

We've had this one in before, a 1996 engine recently fitted with a brand new CE-marked boiler supplied by Maxitrak - the boiler is in as-new condition.

The engine goes well, free-steaming and easy to drive (although with a little care needed to steer in high gear, they go like rockets!). The engine was painted and professionally lined and sign written to a high standard and comes complete with a matching driving/passenger trolley on pneumatic wheels.

Copper TIG-welded / silver soldered boiler, feed by mechanical pump with bypass, auxiliary hand pump on the footplate. 80psi working pressure. Cast iron cylinder with slide valve, Stephensons gear with pole reverser, mechanical lubricator.

Two speed, three shaft transmission, rubber tyres on road wheels. Since last here the engine has been road registered and comes with V5 document.

Hydraulic tested @120psi for 80psi working pressure, 5-Oct-2015
