Well here we have a rather rare find. A Kennion's Chub. This 0-4-0 tank design was based on the well proven ‘Butch’ design, with the idea of making a more compact locomotive that still had the mechanical strength to pull a decent load at the track.
This has been a running model, but has been stripped to receive it's new boiler. Mechanically everything has been well built, and is still very tight. The boiler is new and un-steamed, and has been built by a careful model engineer. We have pumped it up to twice working pressure and all is just as it should be. It will need plumbing up, the backhead fittings adding and a regulator making and fitting. The superheaters will need to be made and then of course it will need the boiler cladding making. It will also need a grate making and fitting, the ashpan making, probably the odd little other bit and bob that is bound to pop up,.... and then the whole thing would benefit from a nice splash of fresh paint.
