How would that compare with top class Showman's engine, price wise?

Saw that on the SEL list earlier, quite a decent price for an old engine, but I'd want a steamer showmans for that sort of dosh.

So top showmans' engines are in that price range?

And more I would think, Peter between you and me and Luton is a place with tractors just like that picture, there used to be loads but some got sold off. I visited them with a NVET local group when the collection was complete and they were all in working order. Will you visit Haynes as I will have to pack a few more cups :-))

You're right I had a wee search, £338,000 seems top price at present:

Mind you there's a bit more to a traction engine compared to a kero tractor.
However, I hear a woman in the UK recently inherited a 1st Folio Shakespeare that may shade either, when it comes up for auction.
