The model is largely attributed to Steve Malins, grandson of the founder of Malins Engineers. Apparently Steve took his inspiration from a book entitled'The overtype steam road waggon' Published in 1971 and written by Maurice A. The SW1 basically uses a mixture of components from the SR1a roller and TE1a traction engines to which is attached a lorry-style rear body with a cab and payload bed. The extra length of body is supported on a C section girder'chassis'. The engine has a double reduced drive using a large intermediate pulley, similar to the flywheel.This gives a more realistic speed as well as affording the model more pulling power. A live rear axle (only one wheel is driven) has distinctive diamond-spoked wheels closely based on a Foden design. The wagon is sometimes referred to as the'Foden Wagon'. The model has red wheels and a green body, with a white quarter-length canopy over the engine and boiler. This is a used item. There are signs of use, typical discoloring of the chrome, some small paint spots. It appears to have all of the parts. There is no fuel or steam oil.
