3 1/2″ Rob Roy

Stock code L031111

 

Here we have a 3 1/2″ gauge Rob Roy, to the well respected design by Martin Evans.  Built by a capable model engineer, this model has spent the last 10 years on a shelf in the previous owner’s house, but is now ready for a return to the track.  There’s a decent mechanical lubricator on the running board, and water is fed by a crosshead pump and a hand pump in the left hand side tank.  Machining work is crisp and neat, with everything still being mechanically nice and tight.  The boiler is a silver soldered copper one with club history as well as fresh hydraulic and steam tests so she’s ready to play.

A nice little design Rob Roy.  A really small loco so you’ve got to be on top of your fire and water to drive one round a track, but certainly powerful for it’s size and a pretty looking design.

As with most of our models, what you see isn’t necessarily what you get!  We often photograph models pretty much as they come in to us, and then when someone phones to say they are interested we pull the model into our workshops and make sure everything is tested, sorted and ready to go.  So if you see the odd model photograph with a fitting missing or a return crank in the wrong place, that’s just how it came in and certainly not how it will leave.
