Half Size Foden Steam Wagon.

Built from scratch using John Rex castings. The wagon is a double high running at 180 psi. It has a CE approved Andrew Kirk steel boiler all tested and stamped. It was finished almost two years ago.

She is road registered on a 68 plate. I have just put a 12 months steam test on her ready for the new rally season.

An outstanding build quality and has covered 200 miles with myself and friends driving. There is a faultless injector that works from over 200 psi down to about 50psi. Also a crank driven water pump again works well to feed the boiler.

Pictures show the engine in various stages and is now completely finished. Full size drawing where used to replicate the wagon. Being a 6 wheel rigid it has two differentials on the back axels joined by a chain. These 6 wheel wagons are rare. I only know of another one in 6 inch scale.

It runs on 14 inch space savers. She is 14ft long and 4ft wide and top of chimney just under 5ft.

Weight about 1.25 ton. All axles have roller bearings fitted.

Any questions please dont hesitate to ask.
