Traction Engines at Woodvale Transport Festival

A photo of a 3" Burrell model traction engine on a home built hydraulic lift powered by a 12 volt battery.

The model is shown at one of the Woodvale Shows and can be seen chuffing around the Southport Model Engineering Club at Rotten Row, Southport.

The engine was purchased some years ago by the present owner and a lot of work has been done including new fire bars and re tubing the boiler.

The boiler is made of steel and has to be tested each year by the boiler inspector.

Models vary in size from 2" to 6", half full size.
