|2 1/2 inch scale Showmans tractor with driving truck - stock code 7545|
An interesting old engine, built in 1977 to a freelance design but with good proportions and nice attention to detail. Silver soldered copper boiler, feed by injector and mechanical pump. Ramsbottom type safety valves. Gunmetal cylinder with slide valve actuated by Stephenson's gear, pole reverser. Balanced crankshaft. Mechanical lubricator. Two speed transmission, rubber tyres to road wheels.
Complete with a driving truck. The engine has been unused for many years, the last owner only ran it on air to watch it work. Tyres are virtually unworn, conversely rear wheel bearings nearly worn out (although I suspect this was original fit rather than the result of wear - valve gear is all in decent condition).
Length 38 inches
Width 15 inches
