92735 Lightning II Showman's, £299.00

***Limited Edition of 500***

Lightning II
was one of 104 traction engines produced in 1913 - Burrell’s most successful year.

Commissioned for Emerson & Hazard’s family fairground business, it ran and transported a set of galloping horses around the country before being bought by agricultural contractor Richard Preston for threshing and wood-sawing duties.

When, in 1957, the Suez Crisis caused a shortage of diesel forcing many lorries off the road, Lightning II was able to maintain Preston’s haulage contract and thus established Preston’s of Potto as a transport business. Still owned and maintained in working order by the Preston family, Lightning II is now a highlight of the summer steam fair circuit.

Our display model, a fitting tribute, is 1:24 scale, finished in original green livery with a wealth of authentic detail including functioning steering and gear selection.

Length 10”. Limited Edition of 500 with numbered certificate.

A beautiful item that my husband is very pleased with. Really difficult to get it out of the packaging though. At one point I was afraid it might break. Needed a very tiny screwdriver like you get in a cracker.

We are glad to hear you are satisfied with our service and the Lighting II Showman's Engine. Apologies that you found it difficult to unwrap, we try to package items like that well to ensure they do not get damaged on their way to you. I hope you consider to order with Nauticalia in the future.
