3 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine - stock code 7595

We sold this one back in 2015, it's recently come back in exchange for a 3 inch scale steam wagon. In pretty much the same condition as it went out - pictures are from 2015.

One of the six three inch scale Burrells built by the late Keith Massey of Hazel Grove. Regular readers will know I remain in awe of this man's achievements - if you don't know his story, there's a page about him here. Suffice to say, it's unlikely you would find a better running Burrell - we were tempted to dismantle the other one we had, just to find out why it went so well!

3 inch scale 6nhp Burrell agricultural engine, silver soldered copper boiler, 100 psi working pressure, feed by mechanical pump and injector. Cast iron cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's gear, pole reverser, mechanical lubricator. Two speed, three shaft transmission with differential, winch behind nearside rear wheel, fairleads on tender.

Paint is good although in used condition, the engine is in excellent mechanical condition throughout - it runs beautifully, one of the best we've ever had.
