7 1/4 inch gauge LNER A4 - stock code 10054

A 7 1/4 inch gauge LNER A4 Pacific, assembled from a ModelWorks International kit - some twenty years in construction with many modifications made along the way, it's come to us from the famliy of the late builder.

The three cylinder chassis is complete and rolls freely. The silver soldered copper boiler is CE-marked and stamped with test and working pressure.

Bodywork has been partly fitted, there are more sections of the streamlining loose in a box of parts.

Complete with a large quantity of documentation, including original assembly instructions, photographs of full-sized examples and builders notes.

We'd put this one at about 80% complete. There is some pipework but no boiler fittings - pressure and water gauges, steam valves and safety valves.

A substantial but worthwhile project - streamlined Pacifics are one of the rarest models we see in any gauge. We had 60023 "Golden Eagle" through the workshop some years ago - another ModelWorks engine, which Ashley did a good deal of work on - there are pictures in the archive here showing what can be achieved.
