1:10 Scale Markie Crane Traction Engine S3728
|Single Cylinder, Crane
|Untested, good condition throughout
A smart example of a 1:10 scale ‘Markie’ Crane Engine. These engines have proved to be fairly popular with collectors’ over the years looking for a small scale, managable engines larger than the toy engines (such as Mamod or Wilesco products).
This one is copper boilered and fired with a wick burner by methylated spirits. It is a single cylinder with a slide valve and is two-speed. The crane is fully functional and the roof is removable for easy access to the motionwork.
In recent years, we believe this one has been laid up as a display engine however fundamentally, there is nothing to stop it from working! In fact, closer inspection suggests it has hardly ever been steamed, if it has at all. Regretfully it is not accompanied by any paperwork, which is not uncommon for this scale of engine.
Overall, a smart little engine which is great either as a static display or as something to commission into steam!
We consider this a small-scale miniature so wouldn’t typically include boiler testing or our usual warranty within the price however would be happy to check it over prior to dispatch. This does not affect your statutory rights as a buyer. There is no paperwork included with this miniature.
Asking Price – £2,495
