Model Type 'Thetford Town' Scenic Showman's Road Locomotive
Boiler Construction Silver Soldered Copper
Boiler Maker Unknown
Year Unknown (certainly pre-1992)
Gears 3-speed
Fuel Coal
Condition Ready to go
Asking Price £7,995

A nicely finished, 2” scale Burrell Special Scenic Showman’s Road Locomotive to the popular ‘Thetford Town’ design. The history of this one is relatively unknown, but the paperwork suggests (as common with this design) that is certainly predates 1992. A pleasant example which has been boiler tested in recently years and maintained to a good standard.

Key Features:

  • Assumed non-commercial copper boiler with a good folder of historical paperwork including an old boiler report and correspondence about the engine.
  • Three-speed, double crank compound cylinder arrangement as per the design for the typical Burrell Showman’s Road Locomotive.
  • Mechanical water pump, injector fitted for filling the boiler when in steam, as standard.
  • Steam whistle, Ramsbottom type pressure release valves, double high pressure valve and mechanical lubricator on the cylinder block.
  • Fitted with full Scenic Showman’s fittings including a dynamo, exciter, full length canopy, belly tanks, motion covers and solid flywheel. Do note, there are battery powered LEDs fitted but the dynamo itself is currently untested by us and not wired up to work.
  • The crane mounting on the tender is usually accompanied by the complete crane assembly which is particularly impressive!
  • Mechanically, it has been machined and built to a good standard throughout. It has been steamed in the past and looks to have been maintained diligently.
  • The paint is generally very good with pleasant lining throughout.
  • The wheels are fitted with rubber tyres, as typical of the larger road going locomotives.

Overall, an appealing miniature which would be as equally at home on display inside as it would be being steamed and enjoyed in the garden!
