Few pics of some of the boilers ready and waiting for the inspector to come in and sign off on the 14th Dec (there are others I just didn’t take photos of them all)
So today we welcome to the factory our newest addition……a 4″ Little Samson.
Ive included some photos of the paint process mainly lining and the top coats to show what kind of finish you can get with a brush and lots and lots of patience.
This is a great photo. One of the 6″ Little Samson next to our best selling 4″ Burrell Agi just so everyone can see the size difference.

Road run to an appropriate named pub!!
Excuse the pun but just look at this pair of Steam Traction World 4″ Burrell road loco rear wheels painted and lined, by Adam Meredith Traditional Painting and Lining.
In this difficult time of social distancing we thought it was time for a show of unity and the latest staff photo so we pulled some engines outside in the sun and hey presto. Don’t worry no rules have been
