5 inch gauge Rail Motor 0-4-0 with tender - stock code 7159

A 5 inch gauge "Rail Motor" to Don Young's popular design. Started as one of a batch of three engines over forty years ago, this project stalled when, having finished one engine each, the builders moved onto other things leaving the last engine half built. Silver soldered boiler is by Kennions and complete with their test certificate from 1973 - it's just about an antique in its own right. Work to date is crisply done and includes most material to finish the engine bar one or two fittings and cab platework (the running boards are done but managed to evade the camera yesterday).

Complete with drawings, builders' notes and copies of construction articles from "Model Engineer".
