5″ GWR Hall

Stock code L051036

Here we have yet another fairly scarce beast in this  5″ Gauge GWR Collett Hall.  Made to the Greenly drawings, and as such is not an absolutely perfect, prototypically accurate and detailed model.  That said, it’s not far off, and is certainly a very nice looking and reliable steamer ready to perform.  Mechanically this is as robust as the design would suggest and everything runs nicely as you’d expect.

Lubrication is mechanical with the reservoir on the footplate.  There’s an injector fitted as well as the working crosshead water pump with footplate mounted bypass valve and of course there’s the hand pump in the tender.

For some reason GWR Hall models are rare in any gauge.  Along with LMS Black 5s we can’t understand why they aren’t amongst the most popular models.  Have a look at the pics to get a good idea of the loco.  It’s fully certificated and ready to play.  More details to follow shortly as time allows!

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.
