7 1/4 inch gauge Quarry Hunslet 0-4-0ST chassis - stock code 9295

We sold this one previously, a change in the owner's circumstances combined with a house move has see it return in pretty much the same condition as last time it was here. Wheelsets have been dropped out and flycranks taken off ready for painting, it's otherwise as shown in the pictures opposite.

A 7 1/4 inch gauge, 4 inch scale Quarry Hunslet chassis. The work of an experienced model engineer with many locomotives to his credit, including a "Lilla" in the same gauge, it has been built to a good standard.

Work to date comprises a rolling chassis with flycranks broached and axles machined for keys, eccentric sheaves fitted, machined cylinders complete with valve chests, valves and glands with PTFE packing. There is a pair of expansion links, complete with lifting links, die blocks and spindles.

From here the chassis could be completed to an air-running state with little expenditure other than stock material for connecting, coupling and eccentric rods, and a pair of eccentric strap and crosshead castings, available from Reeves.
