Horse Drawn Steam Fire Engine (Early 1900's)
About this creation
Hi
This the latest in my series of old fashioned fire appliances.

This one is a steam powered pump which would have been used in the early 1900's in my Lego town. It's loosely based on the real life Merryweather "Valiant" design which was first commissioned on behalf of the Royal Navy as a portable pump to be used on ships and yet easily transported ashore. (and named after HMS Valiant whose captain first suggested the idea)











The smallest version could be pulled by two men and was widely used as a general pump, for firefighting and to power other machines using the rear mounted flywheel. Unfortunately problems with Lego and scale made it look too big to be pulled realistically by hand so I've decided that this represents a larger size Valiant and put it a horse cart (which also solved the problem of carrying the hoses etc)



Still a bit of a WIP so apologies for the hastily taken pics... thanks for looking... comments always welcome
Cheers
