Traders in live steam models of locomotives and traction engines in the model engineering scale

We are now well into the summer season and have had several weeks of dry weather and I hope you have all been making the best of the current dry spell to run your engines. I have shown my IMMINGHAM at the Great Cockrow Railway for their 50th anniversary celebrations and had an excellent day on this popular railway at Chertsey,  just on the edge of the M25. I am planing a further visit soon and hope to have a run with this engine my first since 2013, business before pleasure as they say!!!!!!!!

The 7.25″ gauge ‘Standard Gauge’ project has now arrived and full details are available on the site together with pictures, for this model of an NER railways class T2 0-8-0 tender locomotive.Please enquiry further if this might be of interest.

Other new items include a 7.25″ gauge ‘WREN’ to the Ken Swan design, this is a ‘NEW’ model which we are just commissioning, I have also acquired a stationary steam plant consisting of a very nice vertical boiler and a  large horizontal mill engine,this looks a bit like the Stuart ‘Victoria’ but is at least double the size. I have now taken a 5″ gauge LMS ‘JINTY’ in as a part exchange deal which will make a nice locomotive for someone but is currently a restoration project although complete. Other items include a 5″gauge KING ARTHUR to the Henry Greenley design and a 3.5″ gauge ‘Princess Royal’ to the Clarkson/Jackson design. Full details of these are due shortly.

I have been asked by his daughter to sell the models that she had retained after his passing of Mr.R.Roebuck of Guildford and these are now posted on the site. All are excellent examples of the model engineers skill and show his varied approach to modelling.

An unusual locomotive which is currently in the market place and for sale is a 7.25″ gauge ‘CRAMPTON’  2-2-2-2 ‘LIVERPOOL’  if you are interested in this model please let me know and I will supply further details and pictures.

I am also currently assisting with the cataloguing and assessment of a quantity of  ‘gauge 1′ and ‘gauge 2 ‘ models which includes complete and part built models of locos and rolling stock together with track and other accessories. Should you have any interest in model in these gauges please let me know and I will supply further details.

 

Please keep watching the site as several other projects will appear soon and there may be something of interest to those of you who like starting with a part built model or restoration.

 

If you require details or pictures on any of these models please email at viewmodels@yahoo.co.uk or phone on the contact number given and we will respond.
