In addition to the items photographed below we also
have the following items.
- New in Large Launch twin marine live steam engine. This should power a full size small launch. With reversing and comprehensive oiling system. It's a 2" stroke and we believe the cylinders are also 2" diameter (could be 2 1/4"). Dimensions are approx: 50cm tall & 55cm x 49cm, with the 49cm being along the crank side. The valve chests are 3" x 3.5". There is a 9" flywheel but only added to help turn the engine over. The engine is mainly complete but does need finishing, however this is mainly the oiling fittings and the setting up of the drive rod etc. We were told this is a new build and was built as a to replacement a worn engine. Do allow for some commissioning work. Photos just added below.
- 7.25" Track points & cross over. About 5 points and a cross over with points. It is the 16mm aluminium track. Needs sleepers. Best to call me.
- ELECTRIC NEW IN BELOW:
- New in 5" BR Diesel Class 08 Shunter. 24 vdc, with two 12 volt batteries, operation with speed controller and twin note diesel horn. Fully working with forward & reverse. Comes with wooden carrying tray & handles. Fibreglass body. Apparently has pulled 13 people, according to previous owner. Just arrived, some photos available, please call if interested.
- New in 5" 43xx 2-6-0 Electric powered version of this GWR tender steam loco. Looks really good. Fully working, forward & reverse, with new 12Volt DC battery. Comes with wooden transportation boxes. Makes steam hissing noise when stationary and chuffing sound when underway.Just arrived, some photos available, please call if interested.
- New in 3.5" 0-4-0 Electric powered Tank steam loco. Fully working, forward & reverse, with new 12Volt DC battery. Comes with drivers wagon and battery housing box. We also have a couple of 3.5" enclosed wagons to accompany this engine if required. Just arrived, some photos available, please call if interested.
- New in 5" Silvercrest (Kingscale) GWR 14XX, 0-4-2 2017 tank loco. With original boiler paperwork for the professionally made boiler. One of the later versions. Used but in super original condition. Photos just added below.
- New in 5" Speedy. Very popular LBSC designed 0-6-0 BR Class 1500 tank loco. Looks complete but needs finishing touches, and painting. Chassis runs on air, according to previous owner. Has an unused professionallly made silver soldered copper boiler with original certificate. Built to run, not exhibition. Great small project to complete. Just arrived, photos just added below.
- New in 5" Enterprise. LNER Class V1 2-6-2. Martin Evans 3 cylinder tank loco. Chassis well advanced but not complete. Very good looking new boiler, stamped JJ & number. Boiler made and hydraulic tested by two boiler testers from the Sunderland Model Engineering Society. I understand their names are John Faulkener & John Bell. Just arrived, photos soon, but call in advance if interested.
- New in 5" Jill, Don Young's 0-6-0 Tank loco. New professionally made Southern boiler , with original certification. Part built chassis. Frames assembled with wheels on axels and quartered (properly) & in axel boxes. Eccentric on axel or pump. Wheel linkage done but needs tidying. Looks like most/all the castings needed are present, including smoke box ring & door, chimney, dome, pump, cylinders (machined with caps), piston valves done. Full set of drawings included. Castings from Reeves and would normally cost £942 just for castings. Just arrived, photos added below.
- Exhibition standard 3.5" Tich LBSC 0-4-0 tank loco. Lovely condition & super quality of engineering with excellent detail including brakes, axel & hand pump, whistle, lubricator, lamp, superheaters, etc. Was at the 1985 Midland model engineer exhibition and has plate on side to show. Helen Verrall professionally made boiler 120psi, working pressure 90psi. This is the best example Tich I have seen for a long time and the best one I have ever owned. It has been steamed but perhaps only 2 or 3 times and displayed for most of her years. Comes with it's own, well made, transportation box. Please be aware this Tich will be valued higher than the other run of the mill examples, however you will get significantly more enjoyment from owning this real gem. Photos just taken, please call. Currently held from sale.
- 3.5" Juliet 0-4-0 LBSC tank loco. Part built but lots done, including rolling chassis (one inside valve chest not fitted), complete boiler, running boards, smoke box, boiler fittings, + lots more. This is slighly larger than Tich and is the Juliet 1 version with Stephenson valve gear (done). A great project for someone looking to finish a small loco that is mostly done. Not painted, & boiler need cladding etc.. Just arrived, do call me if interested
- 2.5" Green Arrow LNER Class V2 2-6-2 Tender loco. Nigel Gresley designed. An excellent example. It does look good and has a wonderfull antique patina of an older build loco at the same time. This one is a true 3 cylinder example with double acting axel water pumps. Certainly a desirable 2.5" gauge loco. Just arrived, do call me if interested.
- 1" Vintage Portable live steam engine. Like a traction engine, without the driven wheels. Lovely item with a beautiful patina. Originally built by modelmaker from Devizes. A family item that we have had for many years. Photos available upon request. A rare and desirable collectors item. Nice detail with an eccentric driven water pump.
- New in Selection of Stuart stationary engine kits of castings. I have just purchased a number of original Stuart Henly-On-Thames (vintage items in old boxes with straw !) Some of the boxes are ok, and some have disintegrated and have been thrown out. I have checked the contents. A small number of catastings in some of the sets have rust. I have not checked the small packed bags of nuts and bolts to see if there is also rust there, but can do so before accepting an order. By all means make me an offer on the collection. Just arrived, do call me if interested. Please remember these are very good old quality castings.
