Here we have a nice 5" gauge LNER B1, a lovely example of the well established Martin Evans 'Springbok' design. A crisp example of model engineering with some nice detailing.
As always the copper silver soldered boiler comes with a fresh 4 year hydraulic test as well as a fresh steam test to make sure she's ready to run. Mechanically the valve gear is particularly well machined and tight, so we expect this one to run particularly well.
Fitted with an injector, axle pump and a hand pump in the tender. Lubrication is a robustly engineered mechanical twin ram type on the running board. There's a steam brake fitted as well, but in our experience, like many steam brakes below 7 1/4" gauge, it's probably not something that you'll use in the real world.
We are super busy here in the workshop at the moment, so apologies for the lack of written information here at the moment! We have an ever increasing backlog of models that we need to get listed up for sale, and so have prioritised getting them photographed, priced and live for sale. More details will of course be added very shortly, but for now if you'd like to know any more details do give us a bell on 07816 963463 for a chat.
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.
For any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
