7 1/4 inch gauge part-built Manning Wardle 0-4-0ST "Anna" - stock code 7677

A part-built 7 1/4 inch gauge Manning Wardle 0-4-0ST, built to the D.A.G.Brown/Mark Smithers design and complete with an excellent set of the CAD drawings supplied by Derek Brown. Work to date is to a good standard - much of it commercially done - and includes much of what is required to produce an air-running chassis, along with a set of laser cut platework ready for forming.

A large, attractive narrow gauge design - I had the pleasure of driving Derek's own engine at its first steaming on our old garden railway back in 2009 - there's a short clip of that auspicious occasion here if you want to see what the finished thing looks like.
