5″ Maxitrak Swallow

Here we have a 5″ gauge Maxitrak ‘Swallow’.  This is a great ‘starter’ engine for someone wanting to get into 5″ gauge.  Mechanically it’s pretty simple and straight forward.  Robustly constructed, it’s light enough to lift with ease, short enough on it’s wheel base to go round the tightest of garden railway corners, and because this is a ‘used’ example with the odd scuff and chip here and there you won’t have to worry about catching it with your shovel every now and again!

Fitted with a  crosshead pump with footplate mounted bypass valve as well as a hand pump in the tank.  Lubrication is mechanical and easy to get at in the cab.    The boiler is silver soldered copper as usual and comes fully tested and certificated so she’s fully ready to get straight onto the track and enjoy.

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.
