1" Minnie traction engine I bought last year on a whim. I've stripped and repainted it (as I'm good at that kind of work) and sorted any mechanical issues that needed work. Runs very nicely.

Length 19", height 12", width 9" and driving wheels are 6" diameter.

Fired it, but there is no boiler history so please consider that in what I think is a cheap asking price for a nice model. A bit more detail and it would make a very nice piece.

Only has a driven pump - hence my extension clack out of the cylinder block that you can see so I had a hand pump in for test.

Local collection, Manchester M20, preferred due to size and weight.
