The fire engine is as fascinating to the general public as the railway locomotive.
The name "Fire Engine" comes from the steam engine driven pump.
This miniature working live steam model is of the well-known Merryweather

The location of the various featnres of an actual engine has been more or less maintained.

Ayesha (The name Ayesha comes from a character in "She", a novel by H. Rider Haggard) is one of the more famous model locomotives by LBSC and was used in a challenge to prove that the 2 1/2" Gauge Live Steam Locomotives where capable of pulling human passengers. LBSC designed a boiler for his model and set out to prove the point.
