Rob Roy part-built chassis - stock code 3003

I had two Rob Roys come in a day or two apart recently. Doing one of my late night photo-sessions and website updates, I managed to photograph one of them twice, then write them up as two different engines. The worrying thing is that nobody noticed until yesterday... This, then, is the real stock code 3003, the other one was an imposter (actually, it was stock code 2829).

A largely complete rolling chassis for a Caledonian 0-6-0 tank engine to Martin Evans' "Rob Roy" design. Work to date comprises rolling chassis with cylinders machined and assembled, valve chests and eccentric sheaves, straps and rods. Complete with a set of drawings and a copy of the book on how to build it.

Length 22 inches

gauge 3 1/2 inch
