MaxiTrak - Allchin, 1.5" Scale
Maxitrak - Following the success of the 3/4" Allchin, Accucraft and Maxitrak will be producing a double size version in 1.5" Sacle. This model is a copy of the full size traction engines produced by William Allchin in the Globe works, Northampton, England. The company offered three sizes of traction engine in the 1890's, 6,7 and 8 nominal horse power. Allchin went on to produce further engines up to 1930, including steam rollers, lorries and portable engines.
Based on the seven h.p. version illustrated in the 1893 catalog faithfully, our model will be fully driveable and capable of pulling 1-2 adults. It will perhaps be one of the smallest models on the rally circuit.
It is the latest in a series of high quality traction engines, which Maxitrak have been producing since the 1980's. We are producing it as a ready to run model fitted with a copper silver soldered boiler, with the future potential for the introduction of the ever popular conversion kits. Maxitrak with over 40 years’ experience in garden railway modelling are producing this Allchin 1.5" Scale in conjunction with Accucraft & Aster to give you a top quality model.
