Boiler Year Pre-2002
Condition New Build project in final stages
Price £6,995

 

A fantastic design which will result in a large and powerful 3" scale traction engine. This example has been steamed a handful of times for its initial checking by the previous owner (a relative of the builder). It is being sold by us as a project owing to it needing some machining and finishing to complete the build. 

The 7NHP Marshall is certainly a design of General-Purpose traction engine which is close to our hearts, being the same design as our very own engine 'Maverick', Marshall No. 79441.  It is always a pleasure to see a miniature of this design. Being a relatively heavy agricultural engine, the 3" scale comes out larger than the average miniature of this scale and has more in common with the well-known 3" scale Allchin based on 'Royal Chester'. 

We are offering here the opportunity to take up an ongoing project in the final stages of its build. It is still at the stage where the buyer can put their mark on it and paint in a livery to suit them. It will, at least, need a motion check over (which will no doubt result in some alterations if needed) and some pipework to finalise it as some of it looks as if it has been built up relatively quickly to make it usable. There is a small box containing a couple of left-over castings, the most notable being the water pump arrangement and the rear wheel outer hubs. It gives the new owner the chance to experiment with their own machining without committing to a full build, something we do not doubt will appeal to many. There is nothing more included than is photographed so bear in mind the extra pipework and sheet cladding will need to be sourced as a minimum. We do have a hydraulic inspection carried out by a commercial inspector towards the end of the build. We sadly do not have any of the original paperwork or drawings, both of which have presumably gone missing over the course of this longer build (the boiler is stated on the inspection as being pre-2002). The design is a single cylinder traction engine with two gears and a 4-shaft drive train. 

Overall, a unique opportunity to buy an appealing project. This is one we have priced with consideration for what it would make when completed but understanding that no small amount of work is still needed to get it to that stage.
