4 inch scale Fowler agricultural engine - stock code 5325

One of the nicest agricultural engines I've ever had in. I bought this one new and unsteamed from the builder in 2007 - to see more of the man's work (and we've had several of his locomotives and traction engines over the years) along with pictures and a full write up of this engine at the time, there are works and pictures in the archive.

Recently arrived back from a friend who has owned it from new, he's logged a grand total of seven hours steaming (his main interest being locomotives, this engine has spent most of its life in his conservatory) over the last five years, much of that for the annual steam test. It remains in excellent mechanical condition, with a few minor scratches to the paintwork the only thing to show it's not a new engine.

Welded CE-marked boiler with expanded tubes, 150psi working pressure, feed by injector and mechanical pump. Cast iron cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's gear, mechanical and displacement lubricators. Two speed with differential, winch behind nearside rear wheel.

Jon had the engine in steam last week - there's a clip of it running here.
