3 1/2 inch gauge part-built "Conway" - stock code 2582

A well made example of Martin Evans' "Conway" design for a quarry Hunslet. This one is very nearly complete, requiring minor work to finish, including:

  • Cab roof and support pillar

  • Buffer blocks

  • Fixing cab spectacles

  • Attention to drain cock linkage

  • Painting

The machining and fitting is to a good standard throughout. The copper boiler is silver-soldered and has a current certificate, it is fed by an axle pump and hand pump mounted on the footplate.

An attractive design, being modelled on a narrow-gauge prototype the engine is similar in size to a small 5 inch gauge 0-4-0, with similar performance.

Length 27 inches
Weight approx 70 pounds
