Here we have another GWR 14xx 0-4-2 tank. Again this is built from a Modelworks kit, and again, this is another 'sorted' one, where a competent model engineers has put it together, re-making here and there to build a model that works! It's been run, as the soot in the smoke box will attest to, but not overly so,..... it is still very much in 'as built' and very tidy condition.
There is the usual injector and axle pump, plus of course the emergency hand pump in the tank. Lubrication is mechanical and fitted as you can see from the photos in the bunker under it's own little cover. Although not pictured, (it was missing when it arrived, so we are making a new replacement), the Ashpan and grate is included. The model can come fully tested and ready to play.
Particular care and attention has also been taken when finishing this model. The screw heads have modtly been hidden before painting, and the builder has added the nice little details. Boiler washout plugs, sander pipes, top feed cover, dome and chimney that probably came from Martin Evan's Didcot rather than Modelworks. As you can see, it's all been then finished off with a nicely competent paint job. It hasn't run for a few years, being enjoyed by the previous owner as a purely exhibition model, but it's now ready to find a new home, and is ready to run.
All in all a lovely GWR 14xx. For more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463.
