3 1/2 inch gauge Rob Roy - stock code 7858

A well made 3 1/2 inch gauge Caledonian Railway 0-6-0T to Martin Evans' popular "Rob Roy" design.

Standard of machining, fit and finish is good, the engines steams freely and runs well in both directions.

Boiler has had a hydraulic test with new certification issued, the engine has been steam tested but requires a pair of safety valves - the current ones accumulate - and a smaller injector, the one fitted is too big for the boiler.

Complete with a rolling road, built for the engine.
