Interested in buying a miniature steam traction engine but not sure how to operate it and maintain it? We can help.

Imagine you are sitting on a traction engine looking at the pressure gauge needle as it approaches the red line, the fire is bright and clean, plenty of water showing in the sight glass.

You engage gear, open the cylinder drain cocks, put the reverser into forward gear, and gently open the regulator. 

A hiss of steam and the engine, your engine, slowly moves forward and gathers speed with a nice sharp bark from the chimney, wow, there is nothing quite like that feeling of pride and satisfaction.

We have occasionally overheard people saying that they would love to own a miniature traction engine but have no idea how to operate it.

This dilemma is more common than some might think and because of this we would like to offer an advisory and training service.

We can advise you on the points to look for and questions to ask when viewing a potential purchase. Coupled with this we can offer training in preparing, firing, driving and shutting down of a miniature engine.

We can also advise you on maintenance of your pride and joy to give you many hours of steaming pleasure.

Come and see our selection of engines from 1/10 scale up to half size. We cater for all types, Showmans Engines, Road Locos, Agricultural and General Purpose types as well as wagons.

Come to us and be prepared to get down and dirty.

Just phone for an appointment and ask for Michael or Sean.
