A well built Foster DCC Showmans Road Locomotive, the result of six years work by the builder and now only up for sale due to a growing family - we had the same chap's Aveling some years ago, a well put together Maxitrak engine that went particularly well.
The engine is up on its wheels and rolling, with steering gear. Work to date includes:
CE-marked steel boiler with expanded tubes by AJB Engineering
Wheels built and rubber tyred
Cylinder block, winch drum machined
Gear selector mechanism machined and assembled
Full set of machined gears
Set of laser cut plates for belly tank
Box of iron and gunmetal castings, including crankshaft, eccentrics, crosshead, pump, brake & steering wheels, slide valves, grate etc
Complete set of drawings in a large manuscript case
Work to date is to a high standard, there is the potential for a very fine - and rather rare - engine when completed.
Length 76 inches
Height 48 inches
