Traction Engine Front Lamps in 2", 3" and 4" Scales

Front Lamps Fully Working

These are beautifully crafted and we are very proud of them!

All the lamps are fully sprung and produced in brass by the "lost wax" casting method each item containing rivet detail. All holes are cast so there is no machining required, just removal of the casting sprues and any small "lumps and bumps" which are part of the casting process.

The 2" and 3" lamps have lenses which are moulded in clear acrylic and hardly need touching, and are designed for assembly with soft solder, epoxy adhesive or loctite.

The 4" are heavy castings and designed to be riveted or silver soldered and screwed together. They incorporate genuine optical lenses which magnify the flame of a "night light" candle and give a very realistic light.

All components are provided including rivets, screws and full assembly instructions.

Traction Engine Rear Lamps in 2" and 4" Scales

These are lost wax castings and need only a light clean up and painting. The 2" scale are non-working.

The 4" scale lamp is based on our 4" scale front lamp. This has a single round red lens and the fully sprung hinge at the back.

Front Loco Lamp in 4" Scale

The loco lamp is based on our 4" scale rear lamp. This has a single bulls eye clear lens and the fully sprung hinge at the back.
It is probably most suited to 7 1/4" narrow gauge locos such as the Bagnall and Romulus or 10 1/4" gauge locos as seen here on Gladstone.

4" Oil Burner

Due to popular demand the 4" Lamp can now be light by authentic Oil Burners. These are available as a kit of parts to silver solder together and include stainless steel mirrors to reflect the light out of the lenses and a handle for getting them in and out of the 4" Lamps. Beware these get very hot so be careful.

Dynamo and Exiter Castings in 2" scale

We have received many requests over the years for dynamo castings for Showman's Engines and we have made patterns for these in 2" scale and they are cast in Aluminimum. They represent the Mather and Platt P8C Dynamo and P3C Exciter as fitted to Burrell Scenic Showman's Engines. We also have the correct cover plates showing the cable connections and these are etched in brass.
