Model Type Clayton Under-type Steam Wagon
Boiler Vertical Copper
Condition As New
Length  ~8ft with trailer
Price £6,995

 

An impressive Under-type Steam Wagon, with an articulated trailer, based on a design more typically found in the smaller 2" scale. This 3" scale example is presented in 'as new' condition and has been built to a high standard.

 

A fantastic miniature which looks to have been built and painted to a high standard. We are not certain whether this is a new build or simply a good rebuild but, either way, it has been engineered, assembled, and painted well. The tractor unit itself has a typical two-cylinder, under-type engine driven by a copper boiler. It is to include a set of drawings which were passed on to us when buying the lorry and were presumably used in the original build. They look as if they are the drawings produced by R. H. Dyer for the 2" scale miniature and are covered in notes to alter then for the 3" scale build. There is no paperwork which relates to the boiler build however we would be happy to discuss the boiler testing options with any prospective buyer to come up with a suitable arrangement. As a minimum, we will be hydraulic testing the boiler to ensure it is safe for holding pressure. 

The engine itself looks to have been fitted with an injector and mechanical water pump, alongside a hand pump in the water tank for emergencies. The lorry has not yet been set up to have an easy driving position and this is something we will let the new owner decide how to tackle. By this we mean it currently has no seat fitted and no obvious way of accessing the cab through the roof. With a suitable driving position arranged, this would be a successful engine to sit on and drive around on flat and hard ground. The trailer is nearing completion but will still need some final painting to finish it off (especially on the wheels and possibly the side boards). On initial inspection, it would look as if there is some final adjustments needed to get the lorry to a reliable state, as with any miniature (or indeed any vehicle) following a rebuild/build, this includes a check to make sure all the pipework is complete and correct as well as checking the engine will have no problems when run. 

It has been left in a plain red livery which gives the new owner plenty of opportunity to decide how to sign write it and make it their own.

Overall, a very appealing live steam lorry in an unusual scale for the design and which is usable but would need some completing after either what has evidently been either a very good rebuild or after being built from new by a previous owner.
