A well-made example of Martin Evans' "Springbok" design for an LNER B1, comprising:
Rolling chassis, wheels accurately quartered and dowelled, front bogie complete, coupling rods fitted
Gunmetal piston valve cylinders machined and fitted, complete with pistons, valves, rods, guide bars and crossheads
80% complete tender
Sundry small parts, including twin ram mechanical lubricator, dome, brake components, buffers etc
The chassis pushes along very freely, work to date is to a good standard. It comes with a complete set of the "Model Engineer" articles detailing construction (73 issues in total) and a new set of drawings.
This must be one of Evans' most popular designs - many have been built, they make up into a large, powerful engine. Castings are available from both Reeves and Blackgates.
Locomotive 39 inches
Tender 26 inches
