The Fowler B6 class NHP 8 Road Locomotive. 'Atlas' was built in 1928 and registered VM 2110. It was one of the last road engines to enter service with Norman E Box before the company was sold to Pickfords. Norman E Box of Manchester & Birmingham, as it says on the vehicle, worked 'Atlas' on heavy haulage such as transformers, ships propellers and other heavy loads out of Manchester until 1948.
Decorated in a rich brown with grey roof, which is also painted on the underside in cream, the model features black and soft green wheels which have been given a mottled texture to the outside to show their natural 'weathering'. The decorative coachlining and added detail is done out in gold, red and yellow and much of the dropped shadow printing is featured in yellow and red. 'Atlas' is printed on one side of the boiler, with Norman E Box Manchester on the other side, repeated on the front of the engine. The rear also features the name of the company and location in dropped shadow, as does the side of the roof. A further detail bringing even more realism to the vehicle is the tiny chain linking the front chassis to the underside of the main bodywork.
