Offered for sale on behalf of the owner, an appealing roller which is ready to enjoy.
A very appealing, slightly earlier Aveling & Porter roller, this RC10 (denoting compound, 10-ton) was supplied new in February 1904. We don’t have the recorded earlier history to hand however have found suggestion that this is an ex-playground roller which was restored and first steamed in 2013. At that stage it had the full works carried out on the boiler. Since then, it has reputedly seen very little work so is presented today in very good order. There is 3 years left on the current 10-yearly hydraulic test and it is in steam ticket until June 2024. The owner has informed us that this is good folder of earlier history and paperwork included in the sale.
The owner reports it is a docile engine to drive but is powerful and economical achieving 9 miles on a tender of water on the road.
The sale includes everything the buyer should need to get started included firing irons, a tube brush, and sheets. By separate negotiation, the owner has also made us aware that there is a small trailer available to go behind it.
Overall, a very presentable engine which looks smart and is ready to enjoy!
