One of the nicest Bassett Lowke traction engines Ive
seen, this one came from a gentleman who bought it new as a kit in 1962.
He assembled the engine, made a fine fitted wooden box for it and used it
occasionally before storing it away, complete with its original instruction
leaflet. Now, well into his eighties, hes decided to go 2 inch gauge
this has gone to make way for the new project.
Spirit fired, the engine shows the typical darkening of
paint at the firebox end of the boiler its otherwise in excellent
|scale||1 1/2 inch & smaller|
