4 inch scale traction engine water bowser - stock code 7927

We sold this one last year to a man who has run it behind a small 6 inch scale engine - it would be equally at home behind a 4 inch scale traction engine. Words below are from last time it was here, photographs opposite were taken earlier this week.


A 4 inch scale water bowser, built as one of a small batch by our very own Ashley, before he joined Station Road Steam and became the engine-building God we know today. The work of a creative man, good machinist and talented fabricator (a coded welder, he builds all our boilers), it's a nicely made thing in good condition.

If required he would be prepared to autograph either the bowser or some small personal item (not underwear) that you care to provide. Extraordinary generosity from a man who, these days, rarely leaves his oak-panelled office other than to make a daily tour of the works or visit the sandwich shop.
