Round top copper, silver soldered locomotive boiler - stock code 9278

A well made copper boiler, with neatly flanged plates and good solder penetration.

The work of an experienced model engineer who made many boilers, including those for the 5 inch gauge Pacific "Madge Wildfire" and 7 1/4 inch gauge A4 "Sir Nigel Gresley".

It's either for a large (possibly narrow gauge) 5 inch or small 7 1/4 inch gauge locomotive; barrel diameter is 4 1/2 inches, outer wrapper length 6 inches.

Untested, although we would warranty as sound and capable of passing an initial twice working pressure test.
