Fowler D2 Class Steam Roller 'Lord Kitchener', 1901
Built by Fowler of Leeds in 1901, this is D2 Class single cylinder, 12 ton steam roller, works number 9005 and named 'Lord Kitchener', registered on the roads as HR 3582. It was supplied new to W Rawlings & Sons who used it until the 1950s.
I think you will find that this engine is actually WR 6554 No.8889 Dreadnought. It was mislabelled in the GDSF programme.ReplyDelete
It is HR3582. The number WR6554 was only put on the forks as a personal joke when it appeared at the GDSF.Delete
