For Sale:  2" scale Fowler Z7 Compound Ploughing (Traction) Engine

 Reduced to $12,500

click images

Up for sale is a Very Rare 2 inch scale Fowler Z7 compound ploughing engine built to the highly detailed John Haining's "Superba" design. This ploughing engine is the work of a prolific engineer who has worked on many other engines including very complex detailed locomotives, stationary, and portable types.

The engine is silky smooth to push along. It's run well and steam freely at low pressure. It has been steamed on a few occasion by the builder but largely on display. The engine has TIG-welded copper boiler with 90 psi working pressure, feed by injector and mechanical pump. Cylinders are cast iron with slide valves actuated by Firth radial valve gear. It also has the mechanical lubricator.

It's a monster engine, even in 2 inch scale it's huge, over four feet long and a four man lift. There aren't many completed 2" Fowler ploughing engines in the world, and certainly not in such high level of working details. An engine like this would take a life time to build.

Note: full size drawing plan and working lamps front & rear are included in this sale.

Asking: $19,500.  Reduced to $12,500    Buyer pays for crating & shipping costs from Huntington Beach, CA. Contact me.
