3" Atkinson Steam Lorry
We are pleased to offer for sale this beautifully built Atkinson Steam Wagon. Although it hasn't been to any yet I am sure if entered into model engineering exhibitions it would come away with plenty of awards, the accuracy and quality of workmanship is top class.
Originally built by an English gentleman in Australia the wagon came to the UK in 2008, on arrival it was hydraulic and steam tested then put on static display in the new owners home until we recently collected it. The lorry has now been recommissioned and a new steam and hydraulic test has been conducted by our independent boiler inspector.
It is clear over the years the engine has seen little use being enjoyed for what it is rather than for being run around the rallyfield. It has been built as an artic lorry and a set of rear wheels and axle is included to build the trailer however if you wanted to drive the engine a rear seat and foot pegs would be a simple addition as it is large enough to sit on.
With the engine is some nice history with write ups of the build and a charming letter from Seddon Atkinsons Austraila who say "We have naturally had quite a few vehicle models brought to our notice....I have to be very honest and say that i have not seen one as fine as this one".
Delivery to the UK is included in the asking price, alternatively viewing is welcomed at our premises in Hadleigh, Suffolk. Export also available.
