Part-built 5 inch gauge "Tich" 0-4-0T - stock code 5470

I sold this back in July, it's recently come back in part exchange for a 5 inch gauge tender locomotive. Pictures below are from earlier in the year, looks pretty much the same now.

The overwhelming majority of Tiches that appear here are, unsurprisingly, 3 1/2 inch gauge engines, as LBSC intended - however we also get a doubled-up version for 7 1/4 inch gauge now and again. However, for some reason, the 5 inch gauge Tich is a rare animal - I think I've only had two ever.

This one is the work of a professional engineer, the man responsible for putting together the Burrell that's just arrived. Work to date is very good, comprising a rolling chassis with machined gunmetal cylinders, buffers, connecting and coupling rods.

Complete with a set of drawings and a quantity of unmachined castings.
