Showman’s Engines

Showman’s Engines are an adaptation of the Road locomotive. Fair ground owners in the late Victorian and Edwardian times found the road locomotive ideal for haulage of their heavy riding machines, and, fitted with a dynamo, well equipped to provide electric light and power for the rides at the fairground. Later examples reached a high degree of decoration in brass and paintwork.
