Oxford Diecast 76FOW004 Fowler B6 Road Locomotive Titan Spur Inman & Co. Wakefield 1:76 Scale (OO)
The name of John Fowler of Leeds is synonymous with steam locomotives and the company obviously produced this B6 Road Locomotive for another famous 19th Century boiler maker Spur & Inman down the road in Wakefield, Established in the mid 1860s, they worked out of Eastmoor Boiler Works, Wakefield, making everything from boilers to water tanks to bridges, boasting ‘Repairs Promptly Attended To’. Spur & Inman were operational for over 100 years, right up until 1960 before being taken over by E Green & Son. A memorable achievement, indeed. The 1:76 scale model of the road locomotive is presented with an upright chimney, decorated in all-over black with a light brown finish to the inside of the roof. It comes with the usual finely detailed line-work you have come to expect from Oxford, printed in red, gold and ochre. Registered HL 930, the Titan nameplate on the boiler side is finished in red and gold and a final detail comprises a textured finish to the huge stone-coloured wheels, just like the real thing.
