5 inch gauge "Tom Rolt" 0-4-2T - stock code 8803

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.
