5″ Rebuilt Scot

Here we have a cool bit of history.  A 5″ gauge LMS Rebuilt Royal Scot that was in fact the very first engine to win IMLEC (International Miniature Locomotive Efficiency Competition) the very first year it was held in 1969!    The model has a silver soldered copper boiler and was built by the late John Drury, an extremely well respected and prolific model engineer.  The model pre-dates the more common ”Royal Engineer’ design for a 5″ Rebuilt Scot, and although the shiny wheel rims and red wheels detract a little from the true scale appearance, it’s nothing a coat of black paint on the bottom end wouldn’t improve immeasurably!  She’s still in great condition although currently not having run for a good few years,…..I’m sure we will be replacing the odd bit of gland packing here and there in our workshops!

We have a huge amount to get uploaded to the website at the moment so more words to follow shortly, but for now have a good look at the photos to give you the general idea.  As with all our running models, it’ll go through the workshop before delivery so it’ll be thoroughly tested and the silver soldered copper boiler will have a fresh hydraulic and steam test so it’s all working 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.
