Hi all,
Could someone tell me if the road loco and showmans are available in 2'' form please?
If so has anyone got one/built one or got any photos of one please?
Thanks

Hi I don't think that STW are doing those at the morning moment, I would love them to consider those, as I am coming to the end of my 2" Burrell early next year.

Spoke to them today Mike. No plans in the near future to produce them. A shame as we would love one of the road versions, specifically showmans, but just can't afford the 4''. Mrs says we need a house so been hard enough to get her to let me go for one to start with.

I'd be wary to be honest. I've a part built 2" Showmans on the shelf in the attic. Started it many years ago when I was given a load of castings for it, got a good way through it, but shelved it because it was fast becoming apparent that I'd never be able to drive it anyway, the canopy would get in the way and completely obscure the view of the footplate.

Sent you a message!
At the moment it's purely a cost issue, can't afford the up to 20k to build the bigger 4'' but heart is set on showmans form rather than a tractor.
