2 inch scale Fowler DCC Showmans road locomotive - stock code 7096

A 2 inch scale Fowler DCC Showmans road locomotive, built to the Plastow "Princess" design. About 90% complete, there is some piping up work remaining, gear guards to make and some work on the gear selector. It appears to have been steamed - possibly only once. Tyres haven't been on the road yet, however one front tyre is loose and requires glueing back on.

Silver soldered copper boiler, feed by injector and mechanical pump with bypass. Twin Ramsbottom safety valves. Cast iron compound cylinder block, slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear. Mechanical lubricator, Pickering type governor.

Standard of work is good throughout - it looks like a project that stalled some years ago, it now needs kickstarting and finishing off.

Length 42 inches
