Morris Lubricants build up head of steam for 150th

Published:  08 November, 2018

Morris Lubricants has reached its 150th year,  and to celebrate the company  has joined forces with their customer and friend Alex Sharphouse to build a John Fowler, Talisman B6 Road Locomotive. The Talisman will be on show at the Classic Car Show taking place at NEC Birmingham from tomorrow (Thursday 9 November) until Sunday (11 November) 

The Talisman has been built from scratch, from the wheels up, using drawings and timeless methods that have been handed down through generations. Following the show, the Talisman is being taken on tour around the country.

During the show there will be live restoration work taking place on the engine so visitors can come and watch the team expanding the boiler tubes or watch the painting of the livery. There is also a video featuring Alex and Morris Lubricants brand ambassador Guy Martin explaining all about the build.  The Talisman Team will also be on hand to explain the project and journey of 300 miles in 30 days that is being undertaken.

Morris Lubricants and the Talisman will be   at the entrance of Hall 2 on Stand 2-475.
