Engine HistoryEdit

Please add (more) details of this engines history

S Type Marshall, a 12 ton, Piston Valve, Single Cylinder, Convertible Steam Road Roller, No 79087 named Jane. Built in 1925, she was new to Blaby District Council and later absorbed by Leicester County Council circa 1926. The Marshall spent most of its working life in and around the Leicester area, out-stationed at various times at depots including Croft and Market Harborough. She was exhibited on the Marshall stand at the East of England Show at Peterborough in 1925 and was delivered to its new owners at the end of the show, painted In Marshall No.1 show finish and fully lined out as you see her today, a contrast to the more common steam road roller liveries which were usually green. Finishing working in 1961, the S Type was laid up at the Croft Depot of Leicester County Council for disposal. Purchased initially by Mr Tom Burton of Market Harborough, Tom ran it for some years before he started to rebuild it. He died before it was finished and Len Crane purchased the kit of parts from Tom’s garden and rebuilt it circa 1972/76. He presented it to his wife Jane for her 50th birthday! The engine was later purchased by Roger Mills of Hetherington Lamp Company fame in 1990, moving her to his home near Welshpool and was eventually purchased by the current owner in 2015.
