3 1/2″ LNER A3

Here we have a rather nice 3 1/2″ gauge LNER A3 ‘Papyrus’.  She’s a full 3 cylinder machine and made by a skilled and prolific model engineer, also responsible for the 3 1/2″ GWR King we have in stock at the moment.  The valve gear is crisply machined with only the lightest of wear and tear, and the whole bottom end has the feel about it of a model that will work beautifully.

The boiler is silver soldered copper and of course comes fully tested and ready to play.  Lubrication is displacement with a reservoir under the footplate floor and a sight feed in the cab.  There is an injector fitted as well as a twin ram axle pump squeezed between the frames along with that third cylinder,….. and a hand pump in the tender.  This is a really lovely model that runs as well as it looks.  If you’re after a 3 1/2″ A3, then you won’t find many nicer ones than this.

For any more information please don’t hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
