3 inch scale Marshall traction engine - stock code 9384

A 3 inch scale Marshall 7nhp agricultural engine, built to the "Pride of the Road" design.

An older engine, it's had a recent boiler inspection and hydraulic test. Last steam test dates from 1994 - internally the boiler is in excellent condition, we suspect it's had little use and has been dry stored for much of the intervening time.

The engine runs on air; it's now in need of light restoration with a variety of jobs to do, including:

  • Overhaul/replacement of safety valves
  • Reface slide valve
  • Refit smokebox door
  • Replacement pressure gauge
  • Replacement mudhole door gasket
