1936 Ruston and Hornsby Single Cylinder Traction Engine 6. NHP. Works No. 169167 Reg No. TL 5452 Trevithick

One of the very last traction engines ever built...

This 6NHP Ruston and Hornsby agricultural traction engine left the Lincoln works on the 25th May 1936, being one of the very last traction engines ever built, after Ruston's affiliation with Aveling Barford.

In recent years the engine has been the subject of a major comprehensive restoration which has included a new boiler and firebox, a complete mechanical rebuild and a high quality re-paint to the correct Ruston livery scheme.

This compact engine has been fitted with brand new solid rubber tyres and has only been steamed a handful of times since completion of the restoration. This is an ideal opportunity to acquire a useful size engine in top condition.
