5″ Gauge ‘MAID OF KENT Project

This is a well advanced project for a ‘MAID OF KENT’ to the outside cylinder design. The chassis  is substantially complete with all the wheels ,cylinders and motion built and fitted. The boiler is complete, we have a hydraulic certificate for this item, and most of the plate work is made and fitted to the chassis for the sake of the pictures. The painting was started but will need rework as there is no etch primer and much peeled of when the cladding was removed to test the boiler hence the paint damage showing in the pictures. The tender is well advanced with the chassis complete and much of the upper works cut out and assembled but needs fitting to the chassis. Major work to complete is all the plumbing and fitting up of the back head fittings many of which are in the kit of parts.                                                        £3150.00
