BURRELL TRACTION ENGINE

Completed by Tom Watson

Madeline was made from pre-machined and formed components so that minimal machining was needed to complete the model, a good finish was obtained with a belt sander and abrasive flap wheels in an electric drill. It took just over two years to build and was painted in County Show livery.

Oil based paint was sprayed and lining is to Burrell spec.

Thee Burrells in full size were built from the 1890s to the 1920s. They were contractor’s engines, going from farm to farm and used to drive machinery, for threshing and general haulage.

This nicely finished 1:3 scale model can pull three tons and is road registered. Photographed at the former Sandown Park show.
