5 inch gauge GWR 0-6-0PT - stock code 9271

A well-advanced 5 inch gauge GWR 0-6-0PT, the work of a highly experienced model engineer.

Work to date comprises a rolling chassis complete with cylinders; motion work and valve gear; smokebox assembly complete with door, petticoat pipe and chimney and a silver soldered copper boiler.

Fit and finish of machining work on the chassis is to a high standard. The boiler plates have been neatly flanged and show good solder penetration - it appears structurally sound on hydraulic test, although with a leak from one firebox stay which will require attention.

Profiled brass platework for cab, tanks and running boards (along with just about every other part for this design) is available from Model Engineers Laser.
