3/4 inch scale freelance traction engine - stock code 1866

Of freelance design, this old scratch-built traction engine is well-made and nicely proportioned. Double-acting slide valve cylinder and gear drive to the back wheels, which can be disengaged and the engine ticked over out of gear. Copper water-tube boiler with safety valve and water gauge.

The engine doesn't have a burner and apparently has never been finished with conventional steering gear, although some parts are included including the steering worm and wheel.

Length 15 inches
Height 9 1/2 inches to top of chimney

scale 1 1/2 inch & smaller
