4 1/2 inch scale traction engine trailer - stock code 2498

Traction engine trailer suitable for a 4 or 4 1/2 inch scale engine - the builder used it both for his 4 1/2 Burrell agricultural and 4 inch scale steamroller. Rather a refreshing change from the usual contraptions hauled around behind these popular-sized engines at rallies, this is a rather more authentic model with built-up spoked wheels, leaf springs and wooden drop-side body. The sides and end boards can be removed completely if required, giving a flat bed. One hinge pin is missing, a replacement could be easily fabricated.

Length 57 inches
Width 30 inches
Height 26 inches (ground to top of end boards)
Wheels 12 inch diameter front, 13 rear
