Here we have another well made example of the 7 1/4" gauge 'Holmside' 0-6-0 industrial saddle tank loco. Holmside is based upon a Chapman & Furneaux locomotive and has always been a favourite here at Steam Workshop. It's a very capable design and they usually really sure footed locos that put their weight down well, punching above their weight in terms of pulling power.
The boiler appears very neatly made, almost certainly professionally so and is silver soldered copper and can come with a fresh hudraulic test and fresh steam test so she's ready to play. There is an injector fitted as well as an axle pump and footplate mounted bypass valve, and there's also a chunky hand pump on the footplate too. Lubrication is mechanical and hidden in the usual place under the front running board. Mechanically she's also still nicely tight and generally in really good condition. Paintwork is a little chipped n scuffed here n there but nothing too serious and certainly it doesn't detract much from the general quality of the model.
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.
