Sold March 2009 Back to Archive

part-built 5 inch gauge GWR 45xx - stock code 3657

I sold this engine earlier in the year, it's recently come back in as a part exchange against a Hunslet. Same condition as in March (when the pictures were taken) although it now boasts a brand new set of drawings.

Although grubby from many years under a bench, underneath the grime is a well-built Great Western small Prairie chassis, up to air-running state, with an 80% complete boiler built to a good standard with parts to complete and a quantity of platework and sheet brass.

There's some pictures (and even a bit of video) in the archive to show you what the finished thing looks and sounds like.

Length 40 inches

gauge 5 inch
