1 1/2 INCH SCALE ALLCHIN STEAM LOCOMOTIVE TRACTION MODEL ENGINE.

An exhibition quality 1 1/2 inch scale Allchin agricultural engine to W.J.Hughes highly detailed design published in Model Engineer magazine. The work of an experienced engineer, the engine was built for his son, winning a Very Highly Commended award at the Model Engineer Exhibition in 1997.  He followed it up with a 2 inch scale Clayton steam wagon which won a Silver Medal, then the magnificent 3 inch scale Atkinson steam wagon which took a Gold Medal and the Hughes Trophy for best road vehicle at the Model Engineer exhibition in 2000.

Copper silver-soldered boiler with injector and mechanical feed pump with bypass. Twin safety valves. Water gauge with blowdown and shut-off cocks, blowdown valve mounted above the foundation ring on the right hand side.  Cylinder drain cocks operated from footplate, mechanical cylinder lubricator.  Single cylinder engine with Stephenson's reversing gear, four shaft transmission with two road speeds, brake and winch behind left hand rear wheel with tender-mounted fairleads for winch cable.  

It was test steamed to check everything worked, then stripped and painted.  Housed in a finely proportioned glass case, the Allchin has never been steamed since thus we can't guarantee it's in 100% operable condtion. The engine abounds in nice details, from the beautifully planked and rivetted footboard on the manstand to the intricately assembled toolbox padlock in polished brass.  Complete with the set of drawings it was built from and the VHC certificate awarded at the Model Engineer Exhibition in 1997.
