5″ Super Claud

Here we have a 5″ gauge GER ‘Super’ Claud Hamilton 4-4-0.  We sold this one last year, since when it has just been on display in it’s owner’s living room, so she’s in exactly the same condition as she was when she left here, fully commissioned, steam tested and ready to play.

A competently model engineered loco, which although not going to win any model engineering awards for finesse, is certainly robustly made and runs very well.  Before the loco came to us last year, she had clearly been enjoyed, which is often a good sign of a loco that will just work, and is enjoyable to drive.  We gave the loco a thorough re-commission, taking the odd bit of slop out of the bottom end where we felt it was necessary, and sorting the usual bits and bobs that you get with second hand locos,…. injectors, clacks, lubricator, safety valves etc.  We didn’t do a full re-build or anything like that, as economically it wasn’t warranted, but certainly it’s now a model you can use and enjoy,….. and with those decent size driving wheels you ought to be able to get told off by your club for excessive speeding with satisfying regularity!

Fitted with two injectors, a crosshead pump with footplate mounted bypass valve and of course the hand pump in the tender.  Lubrication is mechanical, the boiler is silver soldered copper and as always comes fully tested and ready to run.
