Mercer Type 2 steam roller - stock code 9476

A rare - and now unavailable new - 1 inch scale Mercer type 2 steam roller. We've never had one before, although see the traction engine versions quite regularly.

The engine has a spirit-fired boiler, running for 20 to 30 minutes on a fill. In good condition throughout, it runs very quietly - there's some video of it here.
