2" scale Fowler Class A7
Road Locomotive
and Showmans

A full set of highly detailed drawings has been produced for this engine, scaled down from "works drawings". This has resulted in a very accurate scale model with every detail faithfully reproduced. In common with our other engines a very comprehensive set of castings and fittings is available to help you build a first class replica of the original engine.

Whilst incorporating many well proven features of our very popular A7 traction engine, this model is fitted with compound cylinders, belly tanks, three speeds, larger wheels fitted with solid rubber tyres, and has a large capacity fire box.

The prototype engine was a fully sprung engine, but as this was fairly complicated, we have produced drawings showing springing on the front end only.

The road locomotive can also be built as a Showman's Engine as many of the full size engines where converted during their working lives. We have produced drawings and castings for this also.
