7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet 0-4-0ST with slate wagon driving truck - stock code 8214

A well-built 7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet to Alan Ruston's excellent "Elidir" design - this is the 3 inch scale version that will go in the back of a car, rather than the Milner/Marsh 4 inch scale one which is a trailer job.
 

 

It's come to us from a long-time customer, along with a Kerr Stuart "Wren" which he bought from us some years ago - anno domini has meant a move into 16mm scale narrow gauge (which I must admit is looking increasingly appealing as the years go by, I quite like the idea of an engine you can tuck under your arm when you're finished running for the day).

 

 
In good order, it steams freely and runs well. Complete with a slate wagon style driving truck and set of drawings.
