The work of an award-winning model engineer, with an
exceptional LNER V2 and Stanier 2-6-4T to his credit in 3 inch gauge, this is
an immaculately built Great Western large Prairie to Trevor Shortlands highly
detailed works drawing-based design.
I think the photographs tell everything on this one.
Machining is to the very highest standards, fit and finish of everything is
exceptional detailing is excellent, the builder even thought ahead to making
the coupling rods, boring a pair of steel strips at the same setting he bored
the axleboxes, to ensure the bearing centres are spot on.
Complete with a set of drawings and a quantity of
unmachined castings. If you want to see what the finished engine will look like,
we sold the designers own engine back in 2005, pictures
