Model Type  Case Traction Engine
Year built  2007
Reg. No.  N/A

Something very unusual based on the machines from over the pond. This example was built by a local engineer to us and completed in 2007. The boiler is steel and produced by Franklin and Bell as a one off in 2001. Since then the engine was sold by us to a gent in Ireland who rallied it successfully for a number of years before recently trading the engine in against something larger. Since leaving us, the previous owner has added the blue lagging and made some improvements to the engine generally. 

I have steamed the engine and it runs nicely. It is a single gear which runs off a clutch on the inside of the flywheel - it is relatively low geared making for a slow but powerful drive. There is a single cylinder and the engine runs smoothly out of drive - it is nearly entirely grease lubricated. The engine carries a different configuration in the footplate to your typical British engine; the pressure gauge is atop the boiler and the water level next to where you would expect to find the left hand clack valve on a Burrell.

Overall, this is a very unusual piece of model engineering which would stand out on any rally field. It is exciting to drive and has been well looked after.
