Since the museum is closed at the moment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to put information about our lovely engines online for those who would like to read about them! Here is one for our very own Princess Marina.
Princess Marina is a 4CD Tractor and was produced between 1907-27.
In total, Garretts made 560 of these engines on this site, here at the Long Shop.
Marina was supplied in 1916 to John Abbot of Debenham Hall for haulage and threshing on the farms of Charles Abbott and Son of Sated.
Marina weighs in at a hefty 5.5 tonnes and does a top speed of 5mph. She stands at an impressive 10 ft 1 ins tall with a length of 14 ft 5 ins!
Garretts first entered the steam tractor market in 1904-5, with a single cylinder No. 3 size with little success. They then went on to produce a single cylinder No. 4 size which proved to be a very versatile machine. The 4CD engine then went on to be fitted to Rollers and Showmans engines.
Isn’t she cool? If you have any questions, feel free to comment or message us for more information!
