2 1/2 inch gauge 2-6-2 with tender - stock code 9850

A 2 1/2 inch gauge 2-6-2, a well made model constructed entirely without castings - it has the look of a "homer" produced on night shift at an engineering works, given the build quality and use of intricately machined stock material.

The chassis is largely complete with motion work and valve gear fitted - stored in an attic for many years, it's slightly stiff to turn over.

Of massive, Transatlantic-inspired appearance, we liked the robustly proportioned motion work; the Boxpok type wheels are works of art in their own right!
