5 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T - stock code 9784

We sold this one last year, it's just come back in part exchange for one of the of the Penrhyn Hunslets listed recently. Other than the rear coupling being changed to the suit owner's rolling stock - the original is still with the engine and could be easily refitted - it's in pretty much exactly the same condition as the last time we sold it.

Pictures opposite and words below are from September 2021.

An exceptionally well-built 5 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T, the first time we've ever seen a kit-built 14XX where you need to look carefully to see its origins.

In fairness the engine, something of a legend in the late owner's club, benefitted from a huge amount of work from its multi award (including the Crebbin Cup) winning builder.

As with all of his models the engine has been fastidiously maintained, it's in excellent condition throughout.

Its performance is the equal of the best scratch-built examples we've had in over the years; it steams and runs exceptionally well - there's some video of it here. A most impressive piece of kit.
