3 inch scale Burrell Showmans tractor - stock code 6656

We've had this one in before, it's recently come back as part exchange against a large locomotive. Pictures and words below were taken last time, it looks substantially the same now.

An interesting take on the ubiquitous 3 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine, this is a well-made example done as a Showman's tractor, complete with dynamo and canopy lights.

Steel boiler with expanded tubes, 100psi working pressure, feed by injector and mechanical pump. Single cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser, mechanical lubricator and Pickering type governor mounted on block.

Two speed, three shaft transmission with differential, winch fitted behind nearside rear wheel with fairleads on tender.

Motionwork is well made and fitted with little perceptible wear - there's a clip of it running here.
