Burrell 1″ scale showmans live steam model traction engine


This is the first run for this Burrell showmans and these clips show how easy it is to use this propane/butane Gas fired model. This engine is an accurate model based on the Burrell Agricultural Engine “Prince” a 7hp single cylinder Tractor, Works No.3728. Delivered new on the 23rd of August 1916 to J.Hardy of Blackmore, Essex, the engine survives in good working condition and is to be seen regularly at steam rallies up and down the country during the summer months. With its open motion, spoked flywheel and lack of cover for the driver this is the traction engine in its most basic form. “Prince” remains largely original, as can be seen from the recent photo on this page. Because of the relatively high initial cost of Agricultural engines, many smaller farmers could not afford to buy their own, useful though they were. It was not uncommon therefore, for farmers to engage the services of a local contracting gang who would, in the summer months, set about the annual tasks of threshing, bailing, sawing etc and come autumn – ploughing the fields, ready for the next seasons crop!

HO Scale model train layout of Pacific Northwest and Logging Industry


www.smarttinc.com presents . . . This layout depicts the popular Steam to Diesel transition era of the late 1940s to 1950s. The theme is the Pacific Northwest from Washington State to Minnesota, showcasing the Fallen Flags of the Great Northern, Western Pacific, and Northern Pacific Railroads. From a large central Railroad yard and locomotive servicing facility overlooked by a lengthy urban scene, to distant travel over several rivers up into the rugged mountains, this layout is a visual treat! With numerous tunnels, a great logging scene, and a rural harbor that brings back memories of days gone by, this feature-laden display has a complex and exciting feel, yet provides easy and enjoyable operation for one or more.
