Here we have a particularly beautifully made 5" gauge LMS 2F, to the well respected 'Twin Sister's' design by J Austen-Walton. As many of you will know, the design was published with 2 versions, a slightly simplified, model engineering locomotive built to look right, but lacking in detail for the more straight forward build, and then this, the all singing and dancing detail version for the more advanced model engineer. To that end, the model is covered in beautiful detail, sand boxes and steam sanders, a nicely close scale backhead,... loads of rivet and bracket detailing as well as extremely well done motion work and general machining. Certainly a cut above the usual model engineering quality but also still a usable, working locomotive at the same time.
She's brand new, and as yet never had a fire. The boiler is of course also brand new and made to the published design,..... and fully silver soldered copper construction. Lubrication is set up as displacement with a very fine sight feed sight glass on the footplate. Everything is tight and slop free, but at the same time she rolls beautifully and runs very nicely on air. A gudun. Simple as that.
