Jack Brundsdon’s

The Fowler BB1 ploughing engine makes up into a popular, if complex, model in many sizes. Favourite for many is the 1:6 scale, described in the 1960s by John Haining and Colin Tyler. It is a two cylinder compound engine made between 1919  and the early 1930s.

Despite being relatively small scale and highly attractive it makes a powerful and rugged two-speed model, 46” long and weighing in at 240lb. Boiler diameter is 5” and it works at 75psi. This nice example was shown by Jack Brundsdon at the 2015 Bristol Exhibition.
