Here we have a stunning and certainly medal winning quality 3 1/2" gauge GWR 47xx. One of the finest models in this scale that we've ever seen, Although it is immaculate, it has actually been run on a number of occasions, and we expect that everything will work as well as it looks. Mechanically it's still as good as the day it was built, and the silver soldered copper boiler can come with fresh hydraulic and steam tests as you'd expect.
Built by Mr L E G Parker, this rather special little gem of a model spent a number of years as part of a well known collector's private museum. The collection included models from the most well respected miniature steam locomotive builders, both amateur and professional, and the way both the paint and the machining has been finished here certainly feels very much in the style and quality of a Louis Raper built model.
More details will be added shortly but we are mad busy in the workshop so to get things up live for sale on the website here are the pictures for now to give you the general idea! Give us a bell if you'd like to know more in the meantime.
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.

Sorry It's Sold!
