5 inch gauge London, Chatham & Dover Railway 2-4-0 "Asia" - stock code 7422

A finely made "Europa" class 2-4-0 "Asia" for completion - we'd put this one at around 80% complete, it requires boiler cladding and fittings, backhead pipework and painting to complete.

The build was started nearly 30 years ago, the professionally built boiler was delivered in 1991, work has progressed steadily ever since. The project has been meticulously documented, there are three folders of builders' notes, sketches and calculations as well as a folder of drawings.

A supremely elegant design, we sold a beautifully made one of these back in 2015 - there are pictures in the archive if you need something to inspire you.
