7 1/4 inch gauge "Locomotion No.1" - stock code 5513

A 7 1/4 inch gauge model of Stephensons "Locomotion No.1" of 1825 to the Henry Greenly design - a rare model, I've only had one other complete engine to this design over the years. The work of a prolific and talented engineer, responsible for many locomotives and traction engines, the engine was run at his club when first completed. Not really the machine for regular passenger hauling, it has spent much of its life on display in the builder's house (and for the last year it's been on display in my office).
