The National Traction Engine Trust

No we are not trying to curry favour with our chairman who just happens to own an Allchin traction engine.

This is Allchin 1470, a 7nhp single cylinder engine which was supplied in 1909 to F Phoenix & Son of Hingham in Norfolk. They owned a number of engines with most of them going out of use immediately after the war in 1945. However, the last engine to go out of use was the Allchin which was last licenced in 1948 - 39 year's service!
