3 1/2″ BR Britannia

Here we have another nicely made 3 1/2″ gauge BR Britannia, this time number 70028 ‘Royal Star’.  We sold this one as a brand new model about 4 years ago, putting the first fire in the professionally made cheddar silver soldered copper boiler at that point.  It’s certainly not been a display model since then having clearly been running with the previous owner, but it’s still mechanically and cosmetically in really good condition, the boiler just at the beginning of its second 4 year hydraulic test and of course with a fresh steam test.

Fitted with an injector, a mechanical pump with footplate mounted bypass valve and a hand pump in the tender.  Lubrication is mechanical and under the front running boards as usual.  The boiler is silver soldered copper and of course comes fully tested both hydraulically and on steam to make sure that everything is good and working as it all should.

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.

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

Sorry It’s Sold!
