5 inch gauge GWR King castings - stock code 3094

A large quantity of parts and castings for a 5 inch gauge GWR King to Keith Wilson's design, castings by Norman Spink.

Work to date comprises:

  • Front bogie

  • Cylinders bored and faced

  • Axleboxes and horns machined

  • Driving wheels bored and rear faces machined

  • Set of completed main frames

Work is to a good standard, the remainder of the parts are unmachined castings. There is a complete set of drawings.

Although not a beginner's engine, this design produces a quite magnificent locomotive when done - there are some pictures of a decent one I sold in the archive.
