My Coal Fired Traction Engine
This is my coal fired "Fowler Lion" Showman's traction engine, it is very well made and although it is only 1 inch scale (the rear wheels are 8 inches in diameter) it is as large as a 1 1/2 inch scale engine as the full size was such a large engine. The driving wheels on the full size were 8 feet in diameter! The model is 32 inches long & just heavy enough for a one man lift.
The model has 80 lights around the canopy, all powered from the onboard generator, driven by the engine's flywheel.
