The Foden “C” type Steam Wagon having a nominal load capacity of 6 tons was a popular vehicle among companies transporting large and/or heavy loads. It was fast and economical with its 3 speeds which enable it to comfortably exceed the 25 m.p.h. speed limit of the time.

This power was put to good use by many companies with the addition of a trailer of 3 to 4 tons nominal load capacity.

One such company was Frazer and Frazer of Ipswich who used the Foden for their Furnishing and Warehousing business.

Machbox is a great company for these engines. It also comes with a trail and a roof for the trail and steam wagon. This is a great company and I thank them so much for bring back this history old the age of steam. It best to keep the trail connected to the steam wagon because it is finely to put back and take of.
