4" Scale Traction Wagon to suit Road Loco / Showman's Engine

Post  Steam Traction World on Wed 08 Sep 2010, 3:48 pm

Hi All,

Just to clarify, we WILL be releasing a wagon especially for the 4" Scale Road Loco / Showman's engine at some point in the future. As we did with the Agricultural wagon the new product is likely to be released sometime near the completion of your engine. Pricing will be confirmed nearer the time, however here are a few images of the completed design to wet your appetite.

All the best

Dean & Steve

Showmans wagon

I agree, it looks great, put my name on one!!! I'll start saving straight away!!
Actually I'm getting a bit worried as to where I'm going to store all this stuff I've bought from STW....... Two complete 4" traction engine rigs is not going to fit in my lounge!!! (& they're too heavy to go in the bed room & it's not dry or warm enough in the garage!!)
I'll have to build a "purpose made" steam emporium in the garden!!

I want 2!!!

Post  bjwlancashire on Wed 08 Sep 2010, 10:01 pm

Well these are my first words on this forum, only signed up last night after placing my order for the road loco at Dorset. I did ask Steve about a traction Wagon then and said I would probably want at least 2 - got to have a road train Laughing Laughing Laughing

Is ther a limit on the road how many we can pull?? I thought three was the limit.

Maybe the STW folks will do a deal on three, a bit like Modelworks used to do with the railway mineral wagons Twisted Evil

What about a low loader like the Pickfords one with bogies at both ends, we could get carried away here - I want the engine to work when its finished.


Cheers

Brian

PS: Enjoying following Lynn's progress already, not quite as far north, but still a Northern Git when with the Saunders crews.

Dimensions

Post  bjwlancashire on Wed 08 Sep 2010, 10:04 pm

I forgot to ask, what are the overall dimensions? I want to see if I could get my wife's mobility scooter in one with a ramp. It will make it easier for her to climb on board - and add to the load!!!

Cheers again

Brian

What colour???

Post  bjwlancashire on Wed 08 Sep 2010, 10:25 pm

My duaghter (14) and Nephew (13) are going to be helping too, they are both Steam Apprentices. They have decided on the name but we cannot agree on the livery yet. Need to decide as we are going to Old Warden and I want to get some paint sorted while there. President Black or Duke of Kent red? confused

Cheers

Brian

Hi Craig

I think it is "north star" or Polaris you are refering to. I like Polaris as a name better.

My engine is going to be called "Crystal" in honour of my twin sisters still born Crying or Very sad

that's nice. I love you

to me, Polaris is a brand of cycle clothing, so probably not for my engine (not that i have one Shocked )

i wonder now many nearly get called "re-mortgage" or "divorce" Laughing

It's all in a name!

Post  Tony King on Thu 09 Sep 2010, 10:35 am

I'm thinking "Nortern Light" for my showmans, as we occasionally see them here!!
I was going to name my agricultual engine "Bronwen", in memory of my dear departed wife.
Has anyone any idea where to get brass name plate castings from?

Hi Brian

In answer to your question about the wagon size, the internal load space should be about 660mm (26") x 1275mm (50").

Regards

Steve
