Models of Yesteryear Y-27/1; 1922 Foden Steam Wagon

Models of Yesteryear

Box notes: "The Foden 'C' Type was the final design of the overtype (engine above boiler) Steam Wagon developed from earlier models. This wagon was introduced in the 1920's, and had a double crank compound engine which developed 23 B.H.P. at 450 RPM. It was fitted with spur gearing giving speeds up to 27 KPH., but special gearing could be ordered which would enable the wagon to achieve 42 KPH., double the permitted speed limit for such wagons. SCALE 1:72"

Quite a striking model of a transitional idea for road transport which had only a short life, somewhere between a road locomotive and a lorry was the Foden Steam Wagon. It must have been a filthy thing to drive, draughty too.

There are eight core versions in the following liveries: Pickfords, Hovis, Tate & Lyle, Fraser's (with a trailer), Guinness (with barrel load), Rank (with sack load) and McMullen (with barrel load). Of these only the Guinness truck gets a small premium. There are also a number of post-Lesney models under the Matchbox Collectibles banner and more code 3s than you can shake a stick at

This one is a firm favourite with the code three modellers, scroll down for more than 100 versions!
