Markie crane engine - stock code 3480

An as-new example of the well-regarded 1/10th scale Markie crane engine - as with most of the Markies that comes in, they appear to spend much time being cossetted and displayed rather than being worked too hard.

Silver soldered gas-fired copper boiler, working pressure 90psi, fed by mechanical pump with bypass and auxiliary hand pump. Twin Ramsbottom safety valves. Mechanical lubricator. Gunmetal cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's valve gear with pole reverser on footplate. Two road speeds with winch mounted behind left hand rear wheel.

The crane is ingeniously engineered and most entertaining to play with!

Complete with gas tank in the bowser trailer.
