2 inch scale Burrell DCC "Thetford Town" - stock code 5450

An early stage 2 inch scale Burrell Road Locomotive to Ronald Clarke's super-detailed "Thetford Town" design. Work to date comprises a SIF-bronze welded copper boiler fitted with hornplates, front end with smokebox/perch bracket and front axle with front wheels, one-piece machined crankshaft, part-machined cylinder block in gunmetal with ports and passages machined, formed spokes and a rear wheel building jig, belly tanks and flanged tender sides all in brass.

In addition there is a set of drawings and large quantity of unmachined castings, as shown below.

For those able to stay the course, Clarke's design builds up into a large, highly-detailed model which runs very well - there are some pictures and a video clip of a particularly good one we had a year or two back in the archive.
