Here we have another 5" gauge GWR 14xx 0-4-2 tank. This is essentially a brand new loco, with only the very minimal of running time under it's belt just to make sure all is well, and like so many 14xxs has it's roots in a Modelworks kit,..... but is another proven runner, having been constructed by someone who understood model engineering.
It's been fitted with a decent mechanical lubricator under the front footplate rather than the standard Modelworks one in the coal bunker! Happily the valve gear shows the tell tale signs of having been 'tweaked' to make it run properly as well. There is an injector fitted, as well as the mechanical crosshead pump between the frames (bypass valve on the footplate), and then there is the ubiquitous hand pump hidden in the right hand tank. Draincocks are proper jobs, (the modelworks ones having been ditched), and control is again from the footplate.
The boiler is obviously a brand new professional copper silver soldered one.
Generally a tidy modelworks 14xx, with a few nice additional details to push it a little more toward the real thing.
For any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
Sorry It's Sold!
