3 1/2″ Maisie

Here we have a 3 1/2″ gauge Maisie.  An older model but one certainly built with a little finesse.  There are a few interesting and nice details such as the vertical ‘Gresley-esque’ reverser and the twin ‘oven’ doors on the firebox.  Everything feels nicely engineered and moves freely without feeling particularly worn.

Water is fed by an axle pump with a footplate mounted bypass valve and of course a hand pump in the tender.  Lubrication is mechanical and tucked away under the front running boards as usual.  The boiler is the usual silver soldered copper and comes with a fresh, fully plumbed system twice working pressure shell test as well as a fresh steam test so she’s fully sorted and ready to play!

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.
