Walker Fenn 0 Gauge

(UK)

Believed to have been established in 1929, Walker Fenn are famous for their clockwork mechanisms, which utilised a Marklin 0-6-0 chassis, which was fitted with a governor from a gramophone (record player). Others are known to have achieved similar results using the governor from a traditional telephone dial.

A patent for a governor for clockwork motors was granted to Walker, H. E., and Fenn, H. H. 16th May 1929, having been submitted 19th July 1928.

(ii) Walker Fenn 0-6-0 tank loco, unfinished and unpainted.

The sheet of brass is provided to construct a cab roof. Interestingly, this loco has been purchased by a friend in the US, and I rather hope that he will provide photos of the finished item. Judging by his other work, which includes a twelve inch gauge live steam railroad, the results will be worth seeing.
