A recent arrival in Kent is 1923 Burrell 6hp single-crank compound No. 3918 double-geared sprung traction engine Victoria. The engine was offered by Berrybrook Steam & Classics in the West Country and was sold to Will Day in August 2021, who could not do without one of his beloved Burrells! The engine is in good order, Will has added a roof and will be taking it to local shows this year including Woodchurch in August. Interestingly the engine used to be called Deborah and had a long stay in Lancashire at one time.
