We sold this engine back in October 2015, it's recently come back from a long-time customer of ours who is downsizing his collection.
Pictures opposite were taken this week, words below are from 2015. The engine is in substantially the same condition as when we last sold it, although now fitted with four smart brass hub caps which the last owner turned up and fitted. There are more pictures of this engine, taken in 2015, in the archive here.
Rarely seen in 3 inch scale, a Burrell double crank compound agricultural engine, well engineered and in good running order.
Welded steel boiler, re-tubed in 2012. Working pressure 160psi, feed by injector and mechanical pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear, pole reverser. Mechanical lubricator. Three shaft, two speed transmission with differential, rubber tyres, winch behind nearside rear wheel with fairleads on tender.
The engine has been in regular use on the rally field this season, it's just come in as part exchange against a 4 inch scale engine as the owner moves up a size.
Complete with driving/passenger trolley.
