7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet 0-4-0ST - stock code 6541

A 4 inch scale 7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet, built as one of a pair by Keith Wilson. Silver soldered copper boiler is by John Ellis, the engine has reputedly had little use from new. It hasn't been used for some time, regulator leaks and needs overhaul, along with a new steam pipe to smokebox.

We think this is a substantially well-made engine with a lot of potential - it really needs a good tidy up rather than substantial overhaul. Paint and a reworking of cab and backhead fittings would make a world of difference.

Complete with a matching ride-in tender.

Locomotive 48 inches
Tender 36 inches
