 One of four engines we now have available built from scratch by the same gent a number of years ago. We believe this engine is based loosely on the Foster showmans' design. Note the cylinder block side covers, dynamo bracket, spud pan etc. It is a single cylinder engine - it looks as if, as some point, the dynamo has been used as a motor as there are two mini junction boxes mounted on the front, one labelled 230v and the other labelled 6v - supposedly to allow either the engine to produce an output of 6v or, in the case of not wanting to steam the engine, to put an input of 230v in to turn the engine over. This theory is untested but could be utilised. 

We will be selling this engine as seen, untested and unsteamed by ourselves. Whilst it looks to have been steamed at some point in its life, it would likely need some minor recommissioning after being on display for so long. It looks as it the bottom of the ashpan has been removed to allow the user to place a gas burner beneath the engine to fire it up. It is also fitted with a manual hand pump, has a single gear and has a copper boiler.

This would either make a perfect display piece for the mantelpiece or would be a nice little project to return to steamable service!

£3,199.00
