5″ Ajax

Here we have a nice twist on a 5″ gauge Ajax.   The loco has been a runner in the past and has been dismantled at some point for what appears to have been a routine boiler test, and the project has then stalled before things could be put back together.  The saddle tank presently mounts right back against the cab as shown, but Mark is holding the tank in the 4th photograph where it would be much more sensibly nudged forward to, giving it much more aesthetically pleasing lines!  We can put the whole thing back together for you and re-commission it for you as a fully working model again, or if you’d prefer a pretty straight forward winter re-assembly project you can buy it for a touch less and do the work yourself.

We have a huge amount to get uploaded to the website at the moment so more words to follow shortly, but for now have a good look at the photos to give you the general idea.As with all our running models, it’ll go through the workshop before delivery so it’ll be thoroughly tested and have a fresh hydraulic and steam boiler test so it’s all working and ready to play.

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.
