Hylton Smith's Meccano Traction Engine

Hylton writes: "The instructions for building this Traction Engine was issued on a special SUPER MODEL LEAFLET NO 22 at the end of the 1920's and was printed until 1936. This model has always been a favourite with Meccano men around the world. The traction engine has a two speed gearbox, worm and chain steering and the usual motion work at the crankshaft and valve gear. The model is fitted with a 20volt E 20R Meccano motor that is still in mint condition and dates back to 1952. The motor has been used only once! The model is in my permanent collection."
