3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" - stock code 4121

A well-made large-boilered "Tich", complete with a storage stand and hardback copy of LBSC's book on construction.

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, working pressure 80psi, feed by axle pump with hand pump in the side tank. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by slip eccentric valve gear, mechanical lubricator. Screw-down brake.

Construction is to a high standard throughout – the same builder was responsible for the 1 inch scale "Minnie" I have in at the moment – and the engine has been little used, with little by way of wear in the running gear and a boiler and grate that have only seen a few steamings.

Length 16 inches

Weight 21 pounds

gauge 3 1/2 inch
