7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet "Lilla" 0-4-0ST - stock code 10049

A well-advanced Hunslet 0-4-0ST "Lilla" - larger than the more common "Alice" class quarry Hunslets, we sold a complete one at the end of last year, there are pictures in the archive.

The work of a prolific model engineer with a "Romulus", two "Thomas II"s and a "Hercules" to his credit as well as the 4 inch Burrell we currently have in stock; now, at 80 years old, he's decided that quarter ton engines are starting to get too big to play with in the workshop!

The chassis is complete with motionwork and valve gears, it turns over very smoothly.

The copper boiler was made by the builder, silver soldered throughout and stamped up with its bar litre capacity and serial number.
