5 inch gauge Modelworks Bagnall - stock code 3821

A set of fully-machined Modelworks Bagnall kits, about three quarters assembled with all remaining parts to finish, complete with assembly instructions and boiler certificate.

Silver soldered copper boiler, working pressure 90psi, feed by axle pump and injector with auxiliary hand pump mounted on the footplate. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Hackworth gear, pole reverser on footplate. Mechanical lubricator. Screw-down brake operating on rear wheels.

As with all models based on narrow gauge prototypes, this ends up as a large engine for the gauge - completed weight is 140 pounds, it's similar in size to a "Sweet Pea".

There's a full specification on the old Modelworks website here.

Length 30 inches
