Part-built 3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" - stock code 3974

A part-built small-boilered Walschaert's gear "Tich". Chassis is erected, cylinders are machined and assembled, there is a box full of unmachined castings and some motion work, including expansion links, combination levers, coupling and connecting rods.

A good start has been made on the boiler - the backhead is formed and neatly cut out for the firehole door ring and needs soldering in, along with the foundation ring. Tubes are silver-soldered into the firebox and need soldering into the smokebox tubeplate.

Complete with a set of eleven drawings and a hardback copy of LBSC's excellent construction book.

Length 13 inches

gauge 3 1/2 inch
