Unused for some years, it's recently come back as part of a complicated engine exchange involving 3 and 4 inch Burrells, two steam wagons, and a 1925 Ruston & Hornsby 7hp engine (destined for our engine shed where it will be used to run line-shafting for the vintage Pittler lathe and Selig Sonnenthal drilling machine).
The Burrell is a particularly well-built example - fit and finish of motionwork is very good, eccentric straps and main bearing caps all locknutted and pinned.
Road wheels have rubber tyres on steel bands fitted over strakes.
Boiler is copper, silver soldered, commercially built by Bishop-Richardson. On hydraulic test it looks structurally sound, however there are two small but persistent drips on the foundation ring which will require attention either by plugging or soldering.
