Models of live steam traction engines include the small 1 inch scale agricultural engines up to half size ploughing engine. Most small scale models are now kept as display models and the larger 3 inch and 4 inch examples are used at rallies around the country.
Increasingly, large scale models are being built in greater numbers due to the availability of large lathes and milling machines, and large scale models are easier and more practical to drive.
We regularly offer models based on the design of original full size working traction engines built by such famous makers as Burrell, Fowler, Foster, Allchin and Aveling & Porter. Many of these models are exact scaled-down copies of the full size engine in which every detail is replicated.
