Recently placed on the market and featured on our stand at the Great Dorset Steam Fair 50th Anniversary - this is a well-engineered SCC Burrell Showmans' Traction Engine, based on an interesting engine. 

Built with a steel boiler from TRS Boilers, Derby using the Little Samson Models' design and castings. This drawings are based on the 'Devonshire' Burrell, so originally designed by Burrell's to navigate potentially challenging narrow lanes, however this example has been built as the very similar 'Irish' Burrell.

This is a wonderful half size and is the second built by the engineer. Having had it in steam a couple of times, we can say this is a well sorted traction engine which has been used for just the right number of years to ensure the majority of the niggles have wormed out. It generates very well and is fitted with an adjustable resistor alongside a voltmeter. The seating arrangement is comfortable and makes for a usuable engine for up to two drivers - something often missed with the addition of a canopy to a scale engine. The paint is to a high standard with nicely done signwriting all around. It is road registered and on vulcanised, rubber tyres making for a smooth ride on tarmac. Boiler-wise it will, of course, be supplied with a commerical boiler certificate which, given the low age and useage, has no reason to flag any issues. The previous certification gives it a good bill of health, as would be expected. 

Overall a fantastic engine that is a credit to the engineer and would stand out on any rallyfield. Weighing in at approximately 1300kg, it doesn't push any limits for a capable vehicle to transport it around, so would be perfect for the rally scene. 

 

NEW PRICE £56,995
