A nicely presented and well-machined example of the popular 3” scale Burrell to the famous design by H. R. Plastow.

Key Features:

  • Non-commercial copper boiler dated from 1993 with historic boiler paperwork and a recent, commercial boiler inspection.
  • Two-speed, single cylinder arrangement. A typical agricultural general purpose traction engine design.
  • Mechanical water pump and steam injector fitted for filling the boiler when in steam, as standard.
  • Steam whistle, dummy Pickering style governors, mechanical lubricator and locomotive type pressure release valves (skilfully disguised to look like the correct Ramsbottom type valves typically found on Burrell traction engines).
  • Mechanically, it has been machined and built to a high standard throughout. It looks to have been maintained diligently since build.
  • Painted nicely in a plain green livery and red wheels with subtle yellow pinstriping.
  • The wheels are fitted with metal strakes, typical of an agricultural traction engine.
  • Speak to us about boiler testing options for this example going forward.
  • To include a half-day tuition session, if requested by the buyer. 

Overall, a great miniature traction engine which will give the buyer plenty of fun. Ask us about riding trolley options which would allow you to drive around behind this one!

Asking Price - £9,995
