Model Type General Purpose
Boiler Material Copper
Design Plastow
Boiler Maker M. J. Engineering
Boiler Year Unknown (c. 1995)
Fuel Coal
Condition Ready to go
Asking Price SOLD

A superb example of the Burrell general purpose traction engine in 3" scale.

Built to the popular Plastow design by a reputable miniature engineer in the mid-1990s, using a commercially built copper boiler produced by M. J. Engineering. It is to be sold in ready to go condition with a new commercial boiler inspection (carried out June 2021) and tuition included within the asking price.

As far as we can tell, the engine has only really been used privately and, as such, arrived with us prior to its inspection with us with no historic boiler paperwork aside from the initial certificate issued by M. J. Engineering when new.

The model engineer who built this example was clearly meticulous in their work. The attention to detail is excellent and it has resulted in an engine which today looks superb, and which has fared very well over the years. Right down to the small oil can on the running board, the Pickering governors (which aren’t always fitted in miniature), the lamps on the front and the detailed painting on the cylinder block cover, it is a generally nicely thought-out example. As typical, it is fitted with a mechanical water pump and steam injector. It is a single cylinder, two-speed design, typical of the general-purpose design it is based on. The motion is in generally good order with very little play evident in the usual spots. It runs and steams nicely, as you would expect of such a superbly finished example of this popular design. 

The paint work is in generally good condition with the odd touch up and scuff mark as would be expected. The signwriting is plain but suits the style of the engine. Generally, it really looks the part and cleans up wonderfully.

Overall, a pleasant example of a popular miniature which will give the new owner plenty of hours of fun!
