I've often wondered why model showmans engines are such a rare site at exhibitiions or steam rallies. Is there some aspect of their care and feeding that makes them unpopular or are they just difficult to drive with a canopy over most of the engine?

Hi

Not sure. Think people are of the opinion that the canopy hides all the workings so may be of less interest to the punters and to some aspect the owner, as he or she would not see the workings while driving.

I am certainly adding to the collection as I am building the showman Very Happy
