Limited Edition of 500 - Lightning II Showman's Engine in 1:24 Scale
92735 Lightning II Showman's, £299.00
***Limited Edition of 500***
Lightning II was one of 104 traction engines produced in 1913 - Burrells most successful year.
When, in 1957, the Suez Crisis caused a shortage of diesel forcing many lorries off the road, Lightning II was able to maintain Prestons haulage contract and thus established Prestons 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.
Our last image shows the real Lightning Showman's II Engine.
