The 4″ Scale Burrell DCC Road Loco Traction Engine

Available as a series of fully machined 4″ scale kits, they will develop into working live steam engine for you to use, show and enjoy. These famous engines were manufactured by Charles Burrell and Sons at their St Nicholas Works in Thetford, Norfolk England. Our kits contain every component necessary to complete the Burrell engine. This engine must represent the ultimate in terms of achievement for any builder. Faithful reproductions of the full size engines in miniature. They are all ‘true’ Compound engines which means that steam is first used in a high pressure cylinder and then is re-used in a low pressure cylinder.

Everything is designed for ease of construction with all components delivered in a fully machined condition ready for painting and final assembly. All kits are shipped complete with full instructions and drawings with colour images to guide you step by step through your assembly process. The 4″ Burrell DCC Road Loco consists of 30 kits.
