3 1/2 inch gauge GWR 22XX - stock code 9427

A 3 1/2 inch gauge GWR 22XX 0-6-0, designed by Collet in 1930 and built right up to Nationalization in 1948.

At a well-advanced stage, it's come to us from a long-term customer - a prolific model engineer and boilermaker, we've had several of his engines in the past.

Boiler has had a twice working pressure shell test with certification issued for same.

Chassis is largely complete, however wheels require fixing to axles. Valve gear is by single eccentric, non-reversing with fixed cutoff.
