5 inch gauge GWR 15XX 0-6-0PT - stock code 7732

A well made GWR 15XX 0-6-0PT to LBSC's popular "Speedy" design. This came to us recently along with a 5 inch gauge Derby 4F, the pair of engines having been in regular club use in the hands of an experienced model engineering family.

Quality of machining is well-executed, fit and finish of motionwork is good. Platework is neatly made, there is additional detailing throughout which adds a good deal to the look of the locomotive.
