3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" 0-4-0T - stock code 10584

A well-built 3 1/2 inch gauge 0-4-0T to LBSC's "Tich" design, in it large-boiler, Waschaert's gear variant.

Unpainted from new, the engine rolls freely and runs well on air in either direction. Fit and finish of machined parts is good, platework is neatly formed.

The definitive beginner's locomotive for a whole generation of model enginers - every bookshelf should have one!
