4 inch scale Burrell SCC road locomotive, "Gemini I" - stock code 7722

A finely made 4 inch scale Burrell single crank compound traction engine. Built as one of a pair, "Gemini I" and "Gemini II", it has been built to a high standard throughout, fit and finish of machined parts is excellent, paintwork in well executed and remains in fine condition.

We steamed the pair of engines one afternoon last week, both run beautifully. And no, we couldn't tell them apart to drive!
