We are pleased to offer for sale this virtually new Burrell Single Crank Compound in road loco style. The engine was completed this year and has been steamed for testing and running in, it is now well settled with the teething problems that come with new engines ironed out.

Built to LSM drawings with John Rex castings and boiler its a well proven design. With 170psi working pressure it is a very powerful machine and quite efficient on coal and water on the road. The belly tanks extend the range on the road and when pottering around the rallyfield should last most of the day. The boiler is water fed through a crankshaft driven pump and steam injector and like most others we have driven steams freely and is easy to manage. The canopy can quickly be removed for easier access if required.

The Burrell is what I would call a keen engine, it pulls away well and is quite lively at full working pressure. Some areas of machining lack a bit of finesse but this does not detract from the performance and capability of the engine. If you are looking for something that goes well, steams freely and will give many years service then this could be the perfect engine.

The engine is road registered on a 70 plate so finance can also be arranged through our specialist partner. Part exchange also welcomed. UK wide delivery and export also available.

As with all our ready to rally engines it comes with a full set of firing irons, a days tuition, coal and oil to get you up and running straight away.


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.
