4 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine - stock code 7437

A new 4 inch scale Burrell, built from a Steam Traction World kit and steamed once to test it - the builder is more interested in workshop projects than the rally field. It's been well put together and  nicely painted, it was running in the yard this afternoon for its first steam test - there's some video here.
