3 1/2″ Tich

Here we have a nicely executed 3 1/2″ gauge LBSC Tich chassis, finished to the air running stage.  This example is the slip eccentric version with the valve gear already set on the eccentric pins on the inside.  It’s the simplest of the Tich chassis/valve gear variants and a very easy valve gear to set up and optimise well.

Machining work is pretty good and the general assembly work here is nice and tidy.  Certainly a nice start to a very popular locomotive, and once you’ve got yourself a boiler that’s the bulk of the hard work done.

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