2 inch scale Fowler "Princess" DCC Showmans Road locomotive - stock code 10419

A part dismantled 2 inch scale Fowler DCC Showmans road locomotive, we'd rate it at about 70% complete; missing parts include gears and guards, one front wheel, chimney, ashpan and grate, along with the Showmans equipment including dynamo, canopy and brasswork.

Grubby, but underneath the muck is a well built engine - fit and finish of the motionwork and valve gear is good, it's been well protected by oil over the years. The engine turns over smoothly by hand and runs on air - there's a clip of it ticking over in the workhop here.

We've no history for the silver soldered copper boiler, however a twice working pressure hydraulic test showed no sign of leaks or deflection of plates - we would warranty it as sound.
