Showmans Lamps

Post  showman shane on Tue 08 Jul 2014, 5:46 pm

Hi,For any builders of the showmans engine you may be interested in placing an order for showmans king of the road lamps with Bruce at RA Parker-sales@raparker.co.uk .I have had my order on back order for a year or more and they are completing a production run shortly to supply orders placed. I reckon the lamps will look just the part on our showmans engines. Even some of the road loco builders may be tempted with a little bit of bling to polish. For the record I have no financial interest in posting this information.

Hi Shane

As you know I have already got my lamps, front and rear. I haven't had a chance to start assembling mine yet, and no they will not be polished like yours.
Received the second shipment from STW last week, but missing the most important item.... the cylinders. Waiting for and explanation from STW as to where they disappeared too? So its full steam ahead with construction.

I believe they do work, they have LEDs if I remember correctly. Tim Watson had a pair of these on his single cylinder agricultural Madelene, I thought he had transferred them to Frederick, his Showman's engine but I looked at a recent photo and they are not present although lamp brackets are fitted.

Well spotted Brian! I still have the lamps, it's the next job to make some brackets on the dynamo bracket just in front of the smokebox. Incidentally, these lights can be made much brighter (and a bit more useful - rather than decorative) by doubling up the pancake batteries in the back.

I decided not to use the brackets on the perch bracket for these lamps as they would be very awkward to polish down there and rather lost. I may use some more prosaic 1930's type headlights with strong LEDS on the perch bracket in the future.

I'll post pictures when the lamps are fitted.
