4 inch scale Foster boiler and parts - stock code 2546

Started by a professional engineer over twenty years ago, this is not what one could call a fast-track project. Work to date is to a good standard, if rather modest in quantity and comprises:

  • Steel boiler with fusible plug, expanded steel tubes, washout plugs and inspection cover
  • Hornplates complete with steering shaft brackets and bushes, crank bearing housings and caps
  • Ashpan with damper

There is a complete set of drawings, parts and castings are still available from Live Steam Models.

The engine makes up into a large, powerful model - I've had several, there are pictures in the archive if you want to see the finished thing.
