2 inch scale Fowler "Princess" DCC road locomotive - stock code 10295

A 2 inch scale Fowler DCC road locomotive, built to the Plastow "Princess" design.

Recently emerged from a shed where it's languished for many years, the engine is about 70% complete, grubby and with a good deal of surface rust - light, it would clean off fairly easily with Scotchbrite.

Work to date comprises:

  • rolling chassis with wheels and steering gear, smokebox assembly, belly tanks and tender
  • gearing - with some fitted - including differential
  • copper boiler
  • motionwork and valve gear
  • cylinder block

We normally see these in Showmans form, although it makes a good looking model as an unadorned road locomotive - we sold a good one back in 2018, there are picture in the archive here.
