3/4 inch scale Burrell Showmans engine - stock code 10014

A 3/4 inch scale Burrell Showmans Road Locomotive; missing its canopy and a clack valve, it looks otherwise complete.

We suspect it may have been commercially built, but not a design we recognize - similar in size and proportion to engines produced by Mercer, Taylor-Hemmens and Michael Holden but significantly different in detail execution.

The engine turns over freely, it runs on air nicely in both directions.
