5 inch gauge part-built Peckett "Gamecock" 0-4-0ST - stock code 9465

We've sold this one twice previously, with not a great deal of progress towards completion in that time, other than it being a lot cleaner now than when it first arrived here in 2013. A particularly well made example of rarely modelled prototype, it would be nice to see this one finished. Pictures opposite were taken this week, words below from last time it was here in 2015.

A well-advanced 5 inch gauge model of a Peckett "Gamecock" class 0-4-0 saddle tank. Built to 2 1/4 inch scale, it's an exceptionally rare model built to a particularly good standard.

Work to date comprises chassis with wheels, axles, eccentric straps and sheaves, lifting links and weighshaft complete with pole reverser in cab. Cast iron cylinders are complete with valve chests - there is one piston rod with crosshead, coupling and connecting rods along with flycranks remain to be made.

Boiler is in copper, silver soldered - plates are neatly flanged, solder has penetrated well and is neatly done.

Complete with a set of drawings and box of machined parts, including four beautifully made dumb buffers.
