7 1/4 Standard Class 4 2-6-0 - stock code 8050

An early stage 7 1/4 inch gauge BR Standard Class 4 Mogul tender locomotive, fastidiously researched, drawn and built with reference to a variety of sources, including the well-known Jim Vass tank 2-6-4T design and many original works drawings (it helped that the builder - a professional draughtsman - lived in York, close to the NRM archive).

The project comprises:

  • erected frames for locomotive and tender
  • pony truck
  • machined wheels and axles
  • CE-marked TIG-welded & silver soldered boiler by Steam Technology
  • Dave Noble safety valves
  • quantity Jim Vass/Horley Miniature Locomotives castings
  • laser cut locomotive spring hangers
  • tender tank laser cut parts
  • motion bracket laser cut parts
  • quantity BR works drawings
  • quantity photographs of prototype locomotive
Lots of work to do, however the builder is happy to help with any ongoing queries - he would like to see the locomotive finished. There is the potential to make a very finely detailed model of a prototype rarely seen in this gauge.
