3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" 0-4-0T - stock code 9232

A 3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" 0-4-0T to the LBSC design, with a dash of Decauville thrown in.

An early stage project, comprising rolling chassis, a boiler with some fittings, platework for cab and tanks and a quantity of machined and unmachined gunmetal castings, including eccentric straps, saddle, smokebox door and ring, motion brackets and cylinders.

We also have a complete gas-fired Tich by the same builder - the boiler for this part-built one has a similar adaptor for gas-firing built into the ashpan, easily removed if wanting to coal fire.
