MessageMy Grandfather worked at Bowmans until WW2 started, he was put into a reserved occupation as a spark plug inspector in charge of a factory full of women despite the fact he wanted to fight. His house in Lowestoft was bombed and he and his family were evacuated to Shrewsbury where he worked at the Sentinel until he retired. His name was Daniel Francis Norman. As an interesting sideline to this story my Grandmother once had to shelter in a shop doorway in Lowestoft when she was out shopping with my Mum (still a baby), as a German fighter plane strafed the street. My Grandmother would often recall this lucky escape and the sight of the bullets rattling off the pavement.

MessageVery nice website!

I like Bowmnan steam, too. Please take a look at my videos:

First my Bowman 300. It was modified by a previous owner so that steam exhausts through the chinmey. Nice powerful little runner!

Test run at home:

Then, my Bowman 234. First, running with two of the six wicks covered:

Meanwhile, I have added some further ballast on the burner tank. So, when its train becomes too heavy, it's driving wheels will not skid but the loco will simply stop. Here is what a Bowman 234 does when really working at the edge of power:

My first Bowman stationary engine, a M175, is on the way to me! smilie

Best regards from Germany,
Jörg

MessageAbout 53 years ago I bought a second hand Bowman 2 ft long model sailing boat, I was 10 then and was fascinated by sailing. This lead in time to bigger things. a variety of sailing dingys including a Flying Dutchman, 2 Finns a Laser.
Today I would love to sail my 2 Marble-heads, 36 Rater and onemetre.
Sadly i am a tour guide and don't to do those things for know.
Thank you so much for making such a fine model boat all those years ago.
It gave me much pleasure as a youngster and lead to a great life of sailing
