Atkinson cycle engine - stock code 5495

An Atkinson cycle engine - we had one of these in earlier in the year, it sold to a chap at the Harrogate Show. A fascinating thing to watch in action (there's some video of the other one running here), this engine is the work of an experienced builder with many other projects to his name, including the "Centaur" and "Wyvern" currently in stock - over the years we've had many others from him including Westbury Seal and Whippet, Alyn Foundry Sphinx star wheel, Fairbanks Morse, Red Wing... There are pictures of most of them in the archive.

This one is nicely made, mounted on a base with a dry-fit battery and coil.
