We are pleased to offer for sale this rather lovely 3” Marshall “Pride of the Road”, we have had a couple of these engines in over the years and always impressed by just how well they go and the surprising amounts of power they have for this scale of engine. The Marshall comes out a large 3” engine and is considerably bigger than the equivalent scale Burrell.

Build quality and finish is to an excellent standard throughout and although an older model she is in fine fettle and looks to have had relatively little use since completion. The paintwork and lining have been done to the Marshall colours and has mellowed nicely over the years.

The steel boiler will come fully tested by an independent boiler including a hydraulic test, it is water fed by a crank driven pump and steam injector. She runs at 80psi which although is slightly under the normal 100-120psi working pressure for a single cylinder engine, after driving the engine around our yard for a few hours, it is more than enough!

The Marshall comes complete ready to rally with the well-made driving trolley, firing irons, blower, coal, oil and a day’s tuition included. It is road registered and with the rubber tyres gets on well on the road with a surprising turn of speed, you certainly won’t be far behind the 4” Traction engines on the evening road run at steam rallies.

We are happy to consider part exchange of all steam and vintage vehicles. To arrange a viewing please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Important Note: We recommend when purchasing any steam vehicle to employ the services of your own boiler inspector for independent advice and not solely rely on previous test reports.
