A 4 1/2 inch scale Burrell 6nhp agricultural engine, commercially built we believe in the 1980s, then rebuilt with a new boiler in 2008 by Gratton Engineering - it had a twice working pressure hydraulic test and steam test at that time and, apart from occasional steamings some years ago, it's been stored unused since.

Cast iron cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's gear, pole reverser, rod-operated drain cocks. Pickering type governor, whistle and mechanical lubricator mounted on cylinder block.
