5 inch gauge GWR 61xx part-built - stock code 3972

A well-advanced Great Western large Prairie to Trevor Shortlands highly-detailed design and using Reeves' castings.

I won't write a lot about this one - there are over fifty pictures to show the work to date, the late builder was an inspector at the local engineering works during his working life. Boiler is by Chambers, much of the valve gear is complete and fitted. Axleboxes are in split bronze.

Steve was very taken with a complete example we sold earlier this year - there are some pictures and a clip of that one running here.

Complete with a set of drawings.

Length 44 inches

gauge 5 inch
