7 1/4 inch gauge "Marie Estelle" 0-4-0 with commercial boiler - stock code 9176

A well advanced chassis and commercially built boiler for Don Young's "Marie Estelle" American 0-4-0.

Not a complicated locomotive to build, we've had several in over the years - if you need to remind yourself what a finished one looks like, there's some pictures in the archive of one we sold back in 2015 here.

Castings and drawings for the design are still available from Reeves, listed here.
