Having recently turned 80, whilst still working daily in his large, comprehensively equipped workshop on a variety of projects he's decided time has come to move on a couple of the larger engines.
The Burrell has been built to a good standard, work to date comprises:
There is a quantity of unmachined gunmetal castings including safety valves, clacks and water pump.
Other than boiler fittings - pressure and water gauges, injector and steam valves - there is not much else to be bought, the engine could be completed for the cost of some stock material, steel sheet and time in the workshop.
