7 1/4 inch gauge "Romulus" boiler - stock code 9423

A 7 1/4 inch gauge "Romulus" boiler by the estimable John Ellis - copper, silver soldered throughout and complete with original manufacturer's test certfication.

A beautifully made thing, built in 1999 it's passed through two owners now who've each intended to build a Romulus - we're hoping it's third time lucky and the boiler finally gets its day in the sun with the next owner!

A large, heavy item - this one would ship crated on a pallet.
