Here we have a really very nicely made and finished 3 1/2" LMS Stanier Duchess. This is a brand new build and as yet unsteamed. She is a full 4 cylinder, and made very crisply, with a high level of model engineering competence. The paintwork and finishing is also particularly well done, with a level of rivet detail not usually found on 3 1/2" models. The overall look is very impressive.
She is most definitely built as a runner though. There is a decent size mechanical lubricator under the running board, and water is fed by a twin axle pump with footplate mounted bypass, as well as an injector, and a tender hand pump. There's a steam brake as well as the tender hand brake, and generally the whole thing looks like it ought to just work, with only the minor commissioning that a decent model should need. We will of course gladly make sure its all steam tested, sorted and ready to go as a runner should you with to steam it rather than just look at it being all pretty above your fireplace!
Photos and more details will be added very shortly, but for any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
