5 inch gauge "Tom Rolt" 0-4-2T - stock code 10118

We sold this one last year - it's recently come back in part exchange for a GWR Large Prairie. In pretty much the same condition as when last here, other than the chassis being stripped of red primer ready for repainting. Words below are from last year, pictures opposite were taken in recent days.

A part-built 5 inch gauge "Tom Rolt", the Talyllyn Railway's No.7, built in 1991 using parts salvaged from an Andrew Barclay well tank.

Work to date is to a high standard and comprises much of a rolling chassis, motionwork and valve gear, parts for the brake gear and some well done platework for cab and bunkers.

Complete with a beautiful set of nameplates from the estimable Ms Carney, a quantity of unmachined castings and drawings.

We've yet to have a completed one of these in 5 inch gauge, but sold an excellent 7 1/4 inch gauge example earlier in the year - there are pictures in the archive if you need a reminder of what the thing looks like.
