3 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine with driving truck - stock code 8135

A well-built 3 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine, road-registered and running on rubber tyres. We had this one in steam last week, it runs very well - there's a clip of it here.

Steel boiler by Franklin & Bell with expanded tubes, 100psi working pressure. The maroon paintwork was done to a high standard when new and still polishes up to a high shine.

The engine comes complete with lamps and a driving truck containing a small plastic water tank.

Road-registered with V5.
