5" GWR 51xx Prarie

Here we have a well on the way 5" gauge GWR 51xx large prarie tank, to the extremely well respected design by Trevor Shortland.  The boiler is a brand new professionally made John Ellis job, and very nice it is too.  The bottom end is very nearly at the air running stage, and although the general work has been done, it would probably warrant a fettle and re-machine here n there to bring the standard up to the potential quality of the design,..... this being a particularly detailed and snazzy design.  Nothing too drastic, there's just a little more slop in various bits and bobs than ideal.

All the main bits are there though, there is a stainless superheater, and most, if not all the castings to complete.  It certainly represents a really good start to a lovely and desirable 5" loco.

 

For any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463

Sorry It's Sold!
