3 inch Suffolk Dredging tractor with driving truck & road trailer - stock code 9209

A 3 inch scale Suffolk Dredging tractor to the John Haining design - an engine we sold back in 2014, it remains the only one we've had complete with a set of dredging buckets.

It's recently come back due to the owner downsizing, a complete rally outfit including two wheel passenger trolley, the whole thing transported in an Ifor Williams 750Kg box trailer fitted with an electric winch allowing easy single-handed loading and unloading.

Boiler has been tested with new certification issued. The engine itself runs well, with some wear to the bottom end and gearing commensurate with age - there's some video of it running around the yard here.
