4 inch scale Ruston Proctor SD 3 ton steam tractor - stock code 8752

We sold this one back in 2017, it's recently come back in much the same condition as last time we had it. There are pictures and some video of it running in the archive.

Ample opportunity for cosmetic improvement - the paintwork is tired - however boiler has had recent test with new certification, we've had the engine in steam for much of one afternoon last week, it still runs much as it did last time it was here.

One of the smaller 4 inch scale engines - it's substantially taller and heavier than a typical three inch engine, whilst at the same time not requiring the heavy handling equipment that a half ton agricultural in this scale normally needs.
