ATKINSON STEAM WAGGON

This nice example of the Atkinson 6-ton steam waggon in 1:4 scale is by John Walker, photographed at the 2013 Guildford Rally. Model steam waggons have increased in popularity in recent years, with several established designs available along with castings.

The Atkinson was described in Engineering in Miniature, volumes four to seven, by Ray Prime. It is not only a good looking model it is a good steamer, very quiet in action.
