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

 Now in to a NEW YEAR I hope you all had enjoyable festivities over the Christmas period and are ready for the new seasons activities.  Having downsized on the space that I had available for models and storage you will find that there are a number of new miscellaneous items listed as I know longer have the storage space available to me that I once had. If the weather allows I will be photographing many of these together with the models itemized below, so they are all listed with more information on the site.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRICE OF THE NER T2 Locomotive in 7.25″ gauge has been seriously revised at the request of the owner. This part built model by Alan Priest needs to be viewed to truly appreciate the high standard of workmanship.

The Marshall Portable is already mentioned on the site but others include a 2″ scale SHOWMAN’S Engine to the ‘Thetford Town ‘ design as well as a part built 1.5″ scale ALLCHIN, a exhibition quality part built 5″ gauge LMS ‘DUCHESS’, a 3.5″ gauge model ‘SPENCER’ the 4-6-0 narrow gauge HUNSLET design by Robin Dyer. This model is well advanced with a commercial boiler with certification. There is also a 7.25 gauge model ‘RAILMOTOR’ to the Don Young design as well as several other models which I will list shortly from my own collection which I need to rationalize. Details will also be posted of three part built 5″ gauge models to the ‘PANSY’ design all to the stage of a complete rolling chassis with cylinders and motion, boilers built to a high standard which I expect to have tested and much of the rest of the platework and fittings.

Two 5″ gauge restoration projects have also come in to stock a Quarry HUNSLET which is well advanced on the restoration and an 0-4-0 Sweet Pea which had been stripped for a repaint and requires reassembly and  possible addition of some suitable water storage. Had been built with a tender so could be used with this rather than the addition of side tanks or the saddle tank of the original design. I have been working on the chassis for this model and is almost at the air running stage with a number of new items fitted to create a sound chassis. The boiler has also received a hydraulic test and past.

Several 3.5″ gauge projects including a Maisie,a Bantam Cock and a 2-6-2 tank engine and a part built model in 5″ gauge of PIONEER the 0-6-0 tank locomotive design from 1936 have also arrived.

Details of these items will be available shortly but please enquire if any are of interest.

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.
