3/4 inch scale Bassett Lowke traction engine - stock code 5256

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 condition throughout.
