Part-built 7 1/4 inch gauge "Hercules" 0-4-0T - stock code 6524

A part-built 7 1/4 inch gauge 0-4-0T to Dick Simmonds' "Hercules" popular design - it makes a powerful, good looking engine which is easy to handle and transport.

Chassis is largely complete, the twin axle pumps are part-built - bodies, eccentric straps and sheaves are all fitted, it needs rams and rods to complete. Work to date is to a good standard, motion work and valve gear is crisply executed and nicely finished.

Boiler is in steel, all welded with expanded tubes. Plate preparation and welding all look good, but there is no paperwork for it.

Length 42 inches
Weight when complete 300 pounds
