Here we have another tidy 3" scale Burrell single crank traction engine. Built to the well proven Plastow design, and to a very similarly high standard as the one that we have just sold. We have had a good number of plastow Burrells through, and the standard of engineering has ranged particularly wide. This is certainly toward the better end mechanically, and should run beautifully. It's been a used model, that is to say that it's been fired and run but we don't think it has seen much use, as everything is in very sound condition, with limited slop and play in the motion. The boiler is silver soldered copper, and we've given it it's initial hydraulic shell (twice working pressure) test, and we will of course steam test it for a new owner prior to delivery. It can therefore have all it's fresh certificates (4 year hydraulic and annual steam) and is ready to play.
It has an injector, the usual crank shaft water pump, and there is a hand pump on the footplate. She also has a water lifter fitted which, more often the reserve of the bigger engines, is always a nice feature to find on a 3". The paint is neatly done, and in good condition, and particular attention has been given to ease of operation., She has easy to use oil pots all over the place. Well thought out, well executed, and ready to entertain.
Photos to follow very shortly, but for any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
Sorry It's Sold!
