These model steam fire engines were originally built as toys for Victorian children by the Bing Company of Germany. Orginal examples are now extremely rare, and command a very high price when they appear at collectors sales.

Our fire engines are hand built replicas, exact in every detail of construction and materials. Each model is built to specifically to order, and comes complete with all accessories necessary for operation.

Each engine is presented in a handmade maroon box containing the hoses, funnel, pickup strainer, draw bar and individually numbered certificate with instructions.

Due to the large amount of work involved in making these engines, only a small number will be produced each year. If you are interested in ordering a fire engine from us please contact us to check delivery times.
