We are delighted to offer for sale this mighty 4” scale Fowler Road Locomotive! An impressive engine which was carefully built over 2 1/2 years before being enjoyed for several years.

Key Features:

  • The boiler was commercially made by AJB Engineering in 2015 and is accompanied by full documents. It was recently commercially boiler tested so is ready for hand over with no further preparation with the inclusion of a 2023 10-yearly hydraulic examination.
  • Notably, this is a true compound example set to operate at 170PSI.
  • Three-speed, compound cylinder arrangement with slide valves actuated by Stephenson’s links.
  • Mechanical water pump and steam injector fitted for filling the boiler when in steam, as standard.
  • Steam whistle, governor, mechanical lubricator, and operational pressure release valves, as expected.
  • Well-built to a good standard throughout and maintained to a high standard. Having seen only a few years of use, there is very little wear in the components.
  • The paintwork is reflective of the life of a working Road Locomotive. It is not pristine and offers room for improvement in places but it is very presentable and looks impressive in a traditional livery.
  • Road Locomotive fittings including motion covers, solid, Fowler-shaped flywheel, bunker extension, belly tanks, half-canopy and rubber tyres.  
  • The wheels are fitted with vulcanised tyres for a smooth and comfortable ride on the road as well as the rally field.
  • Registered for road use with a current V5C (66 plate).
  • Ride-on single seat and a twin seat both included which attach to the rear of tender with footrests. Also includes two small wagons built to look similar to those shown in a photo featuring the original ‘Kitchener’ carrying out haulage in its working life.
  • Includes a half-day tuition session, if requested by the buyer. 

Overall, an impressive miniature of which rarely comes to the open market! It sits large in our showroom and certainly looks the part of a powerful Fowler Road Locomotive!
