5 inch gauge Scamp - stock code 2566

The work of a prolific locomotive builder, he was also responsible for the fine LBSCR Terrier I had in last year. Built in 2004 to David Malcolm's "Scamp" design, published in "Engineering in Miniature", for an easy to drive beginner's engine, it's been put together with his typical neat engineering and goes particularly well.

Copper silver soldered boiler, feed by injector, axle pump with auxiliary hand pump in side tank. Stainless steel ashpan. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's valvegear with pole reverser in cab. Spring loaded drain cocks. Mechanical lubricator.

The engine has never been painted (like the Terrier). It sold to another club member as soon as it was finished, who used it occasionally. It's still in as-new condition mechanically and will give many years of good service.

Length 22 1/2 inches
