5 inch gauge B1 tender - stock code 3012

A part-built tender in 5 inch gauge, built to Martin Evans' "Springbok" design. Work to date comprises:

  • Rolling chassis, wheels running in gunmetal axle boxes
  • Compensated brakes
  • Buffers
  • Brass tank

There is a set of six unmachined dummy leaf spring castings in gunmetal.

Workmanship is fair to middling throughout, the thick coats of primer don't do it any favours. Really needs stripping completely and sorting out. Having said that, there's the basis of a rebuild here (or even, with some beefed up springs, a driving truck).

Length 25 inches
