This is the new for 2016 Roundhouse 'Bundaberg Fowler' live steam model. It is a model of works number 6, built in 1952 by the Bundaberg foundry for the Millaquin Mill in Queensland, Australia. In its later years it became known as ‘Speedy’, operating on the Ballyhooley Steam Railway, transporting passengers around the Port Douglas area.

Please note - You will only be charged £50 deposit at this stage. After this is paid, we will then contact you in relation to the payment of the balance (which can be paid anytime from time of order until latest, around four weeks before delivery). Please ensure a telephone number is provided for us to contact you.

'Bundaberg' is available in any Roundhouse colour, which are all shown on a colour chart above. Please select your desired colour from the dropdown menu. Colours may vary on the model to those in the picture. Final confirmation of specifications will be required two months before your locomotive is manufactured, and at this point, to be sure you are happy with your choice, we can lend you colour swatches to assist you.

Gas

Ordinary Butane or Iso-butane gas (as used in gas cigarette lighters) is the preferred fuel, though for economy, the larger canisters as used for blowlamps or camping stoves etc. are better (we do stock these at £3.50 each or 3 for £10 however they are not available to be sent via post or courier). The larger canisters have an EN417 threaded self sealing valve on top and require a special adapter (which we stock - see here) to couple up to the filler valve on the locomotive. Mixed gases, i.e. Butane with a proportion of Propane mixed in, are available, and may be used on current models if straight Butane is unavailable. These come in a variety of mixes ranging from 90/10 to 60/40 with one of the most common being 70/30. The figures refer to the proportions of the mix i.e. 70/30 contains 70% butane and 30% propane. If using mixed gasses, always choose the one with the largest proportion of butane.

Water

These locos are fussy things. Tapwater in softwater areas is acceptable but in hardwater areas in can lead to limescale in the boiler and pipework. De-ionized water removes zinc from brass fittings so isn't good. Purified water is a tricky one, as it is not always clear how purification has taken place. Shops that sell it will variously tell you it is de-ionized, or distilled. If you can't be sure that it is distilled, don't use it. De-humidified water good as is deep freezer ice. Distilled water is the best. Unfortunately, its hard to get hold of.  If buying distilled water, be very sure that it actually is. Some retail outlets will sell 'purified' or 'de-ionized' water. Another soloution is filtered rain water using filters, which we stock also (see here). Rain water can not be stored for more than a few weeks.

Full instructions are included for steaming.
