 A unique opportunity to own a rare traction engine; a genuine Allchin DCC Road Locomotive.

Records suggest this example was dispatched to Smellie of Brisbane, Australia in 1908. It was the only genuine Road Locomotive documented to have been exported to Australia by Allchin and is one of only very few left in the world to have survived into preservation. The history records are not particularly complete however we can presume that during its life it was eventually laid up and some significant parts were removed (notably the cylinder block is missing from the engine - included in the sale is as pictured plus any parts the seller managed to pull out alongside it). The engine was exported from Australia (the complete and correct paperwork for this export is present and any interested parties are welcome to inspect it at their leisure) and came to the UK where it sat for several more years before being acquired by the current owner. We have now been asked to advertise it for sale with the hope that it goes to someone with the resources to complete the restoration on this well-deserving traction engine. It is need of a complete restoration as the pictures demonstrate. We would always recommend viewing any of our advertised vehicles in person, especially with regards to projects. Third party inspectors or similar are welcome to accompany you on any viewings too, at your expense of course.

The asking price is such that it gives any prospective buyers plenty of 'wiggle room' to complete the restoration and end up with a fantastic Road Locomotive owing them less that buying such a machine would cost; indeed one would be hard pressed to find another Allchin Road Locomotive for sale so this may be a truly one off chance!
