Here we have a rather sweet little 5" gauge 'Alice' Class quarry Hunslet. This is a professionally made model supplied by Maxitrak. The model is unsteamed and in brand new condition.
The boiler is of course a professionally made copper silver soldered one, and can be given a fresh 4 year hydraulic test and annual steam test before she leaves us so that she's ready for you to play. Whilst the loco is quite simply constructed, and concessions have clearly been made for ease of commercial production,.... (the rods are all laser cuts rather than machined up,.... the springs are all silhouette cut outs rather than individually leaved fabrications),.... the net result is extremely neat and convincing. Everything is certainly very crisp and well executed.
There is an axle pump fitted with footplate bypass valve and a hand pump on the footplate as well. Lubrication was originally a simple displacement one, but Maxitrak offer a mechanical lubricator upgrade, which the previous owner has had fitted under the front running board.
There's no escaping the fact that it's a very cute little thing and is a thousand pounds less expensive than a new one!
For any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
SORRY IT'S SOLD!!!
