Model steam locomotive, 1:12 scale, working, represents a standard passenger type locomotive c.1837, made by Mr. J. Dawson, District Superintendent at Southampton of the London & Southampton Railway.

This model represents an engine of the standard passenger type of the period, with six wheels, a single driving axle, inside cylinders and outside frames.

The cylinders were 12 inches in diameter, and the driving wheels were 60 inches in diameter. The smokebox completely enclosed and supported the cylinders, but the valves were placed above them. The cross-head guides were of the four-bar type, and above them were arranged rocking shafts for driving the slide valves.
