Burrell 7 NHP Road Locomotive 'The President'
Product Code: CC20516
‘The President’ was originally built as a showman’s engine in 1902 for President George Kemp of Leicester to pull and power his famous Dreamland Bioscope Show. In 1906 it was returned to Burrells and converted to a heavy duty road locomotive and subsequently sold to George Caudwell of Gedney, Lincolnshire and was operated on haulage duties until 1940 before being sold to Darbys of Ely for threshing duties. ‘The President’ was owned for many years by the Bressingham Museum in Norfolk until being purchased by John Bainbridge in Newcastle Upon Tyne who over the last 3 years has fully restored the engine which now resides with Mike Drealan in Scotland.
