Part-built 7 1/4 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T - stock code 8088

A well-advanced 7 1/4 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T to Martin Evans' "Dart" design, chassis is up to air-running stage. The boiler is copper, silver soldered - the work of an experienced boiler maker. Well made, it has club certification for its initial twice working pressure hydraulic test.

Much work already done, to a high standard throughout - earlier in the year we sold a fine Fowler traction engine by the same builder. Main work to complete is platework for cab and tanks - a kit of laser cut parts is available commercially - pipework and painting.

Complete with a set of drawings and copies of the original construction series from "Model Engineer" magazine.
