3 1/2 inch gauge part-built Buffalo 0-8-0 - stock code 4195

One of the rarer designs that we see in the workshop, “Buffalo” is the 2-8-0 variant of Martin Evans’ “Caribou” design for a Candian switcher. I like both versions – visiting a club a couple of years ago, I got to see a Caribou doubled up to 7 ¼ inch gauge, which made a mighty great thing.

Work on this engine is to a good standard throughout and comprises a complete piston-valve chassis, up to air-running stage, with a silver-soldered copper boiler and a quantity of castings and stock material to complete, including blanks for tender wheels, formed brass tender sides, bogie castings and a pair of completed running boards.

The engine has been well oiled before storage, the motionwork cleans up to bright after removing the tarnish.
Complete with set of drawings and copy of the construction manual.
