Model Type  Special Scenic Showman's Road Locomotive
Boiler Year  Unknown
Design  'Thetford Town' drawings by Ronald H Clark
Boiler Material  Copper
Boiler Maker  Unknown (non-commercial)
Price  £6,799

 

A very popular 2" scale design of the Burrell Special Scenic Showman's Road Locomotive to the Thetford Town design. This example is presented in running condition in need of fettling to return to fully serviceable condition. The popular design by Ronald H Clark was something of a simplification of the original Scenic Showman's Road Locomotives but has proved very successful over the years as both running, live steam models and as pretty display pieces. 

The paint on this example is passable but we have certainly seen better - it has been hand painted and doesn't come across as a well-finished cosmetically; which is a shame, as it is a pleasant model featuring a mechanical water pump, two injectors (as was typical on the Scenics) and a hand pump! You certainly shouldn't have an issue getting water into the boiler on this one with four potential input mechanisms. The engine itself is of double crank compound design and runs a three-speed drive train. The lining on the livery is a mix of paint and stickers and does help with the overall appearance. 

To summarise, a pleasant model which has seen lots of use over the years and is presented to include a hydraulic boiler test certificate expiring in December 2021. We will not be issuing any further paperwork with this one in the price however would advise any potential buyers to give us a call to discuss the options available. Whilst it looks to be an acceptable standard for running following some recommissioning, it may benefit from a cosmetic overhaul if destined to be a display piece.
