3 1/2 inch narrow gauge Alco 2-6-2T "Mountaineer" - stock code 10077

A large quantity of parts, machined castings, commercially built CE-marked copper boiler and set of drawings for a 3 1/2 inch narrow gauge Alco 2-6-2T, to Don Young's "Mountaineer" design.

Based on the two foot gauge prototype preserved on the Ffestiniog Railway, this comes out to be a large locomotive in 3 1/2 inch gauge - over a yard long and a two man lift when complete.

If you need reminding what the engine will look like when finished there are pictures of several in the archive, including this one finished in black livery.
