4 inch scale Foster - stock code 2691

Bit of a brief write-up for this one, it was only in the workshop for a few days before somebody spotted it - I didn't get a chance to take a decent set of pictures.

Nicely made Foster traction engine to the Live Steam Models design. Steel boiler, fusible plug, feed by injector and mechanical feed pump. Single cylinder, slide valve actuated by Stephenson's reversing gear, pole reverser on footplate.

Complete with a purpose built aluminium powder-coated driving trolley.
