An exhibition standard Royal Chester,
Allchin 1.5” scale traction engine.


An example of the very finest model engineering that has now unfortunately become a rarity and soon to be only a treasured memory.

The Workshop report on this model - “Among the very best we have ever had - detail on detail”. She runs superbly on air in both forward and reverse gears. I have only had her hydraulic boiler tested. As most collectors keep this quality of model for display purposes only, I did not want to risk damaging the paintwork by having her in steam. She is still in museum standard. She has an injector, crankshaft pump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, handbrake, etc.

Please note the collection of hand tools, twin belts, oil lamps (with wicks), etc. etc.

Measurements : 28” long, 11” wide, 16” high, Rear wheel diameter 9”, front wheels 5.5”.

1.5” Fowler Agricultural traction engine.


A rare example of a 16nhp Fowler Traction engine with Church valve gear.

The builder, a highly experienced model engineer and professional welder, built the boiler in Stainless Steel. Now deceased it is impossible to get the necessary Welder’s Certification Details and hence no Boiler Certificate - therefore it cannot be run specifically on Club premises – though of course it can be run elsewhere.

I have given her a hydraulic test to 150psi with not the slightest issue. Also I have had her running on compressed air in forward and reverse gears.

She has a handpump, easily accessible on the right hand side of the footplate.

She has been repainted and lacquered to a very high standard.

Measurements : 25” long, 12” wide, 17” high, rear wheel diameter 8”.

5” gauge Rare Super Simplex 0-6-0


A good example of the “extra” powerful Super Simplex. If you are looking for a strong locomotive for public running duties on club open days, this is the one for you.

Martin Evan’s Super Simplex locomotives are a rarity and I was never sure quite why he went this extra mile. It’s chassis is 2 inches longer, the boiler diameter is 5” compared to the 4.5” of the Simplex, has an extra row of superheaters, the boiler water feed enters on top of the boiler as compared to the side entrance of Simplex,and most importantly the cylinder bore is slightly larger. All in all an extra large and powerful tank locomotive with a large enough boiler to provide sustained maximum steam pressure over longer periods.

She has an injector, axle pump, handpump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, etc.

5” gauge GWR 4 cylinder King John 4-6-0,
New Build, very good runner.


This new build 4 cylinder King John, was built by a highly qualified professional engineer, with a life time of experience behind him.

He has built this superb model with some interesting features of his own. For example, he made the calculated decision that for a boiler and firebox of this size with its enormous capacity to generate steam, that a single safety valve is not best practice. (I know what he means because currently I am selling my 5” gauge Duchess of Sutherland and that has FOUR safety valves, though the boiler is slightly bigger). Therefore he installed a second safety valve in the position where the twin whistles are usually located. It could be possible to secure a set of dummy whistles in front of the safety valve to make it less conspicuous - though personally I would be more than happy with it - makes it unique.

He has run the blower steam pipe, lagged, along the offside of the boiler to look like the Vacuum Exhaust pipe as on the full size loco, and adjacent to the smokebox he has provided an on/off valve. This because beneath the running board there is a connection for a compressed air line to operate the blower when firing the engine from cold. Some clubs do have this facility. So once the loco has sufficient steam pressure to supply the blower the valve would be opened to steam only.

The loco has an injector, axle pump, tender handpump (with push fit connector between loco and tender), twin mechanical cylinder lubricators run off the rocking shafts, tender handbrake, etc.

In steam on the rolling road she performed extremely well, displaying perfect valve settings, etc, - A Reliable Runner written all over it. As one would expect from such a model builder.

Measurements : 74” long, 10” wide, 15” high.

Boiler certificate expires : Hydraulic April 2022, Steam June 2019.

Stuart Turner 501 boiler with ST 10v.


A “high quality” working steam raising boiler and steam operated ST 10v in sparkling showroom condition.

The model, built by a highly experienced model engineer, has been run on steam using the pair of propane gas burners. These provide a sufficiently high temperature to generate steam for a much larger engine should it be required by the new owner. The hand pump has a large capacity too and would easily maintain the boiler level for the higher steam output.

The model also has a whistle, displacement lubricator, regulator for steam supply, double propane burner, boiler blowdown valve, etc.

Baseboard measures : 15” square.

Price - £1,250.

Quite rare Stuart Turner “Williamson”,
vertical steam engine - superb quality.


A “Fine” build example of the quite rare Stuart Turner “Williamson” vertical engine. A scaled copy of the agricultural engine built late 1800’s by the Kendal firm of Williamson Brothers.

This model is absolutely faultless and comes in a beautifully created secure wooden cabinet - a real gem.

Measurements : 12” high, flywheel 5.5” diameter, the wooden stand 7” square.

Price - £1,190.

Plus p&p £16, though buyer can collect.

Overseas buyers please email me your zipcode for an accurate shipping quote.


















3.5” gauge GNR Atlantic 4-4-2 Maisie
(Swiss watch class).


Maisie models have been very popular over the years. The wide “over the frames” firebox means you have an enormous fire and so never short of steam, excellent for beginners and old hands alike. And their range of power has also been an asset.

It is extremely rare that I use the term “runs like a Swiss watch” but in this case it really is true. She has been around a bit but I have found over the years that when a model is originally built to such a high spec of machining as this one they run continuously at this same level for the rest of their useful life. The boiler, etc, may wear out but not the highly machined motions.

She has been to the workshop where she performed most elegantly and now has a full boiler certificate.

The paintwork has been touched up over the years and it would benefit aesthetically from a repaint.

She has an injector, axle pump, tender hand pump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, etc.

Comes with excellent storage / carrying cases shown in photograph 10.

Measurements : 45” long, 7” wide, 10” high.

Boiler certificate expires : Hydraulic June 2020, Steam Aug 2019.

NOW SOLD




















3.5” gauge 0-6-0 Derby Class 4,
Midland freight locomotive.


This is an excellent and quite rare example of the Derby Class 4 Freight locomotive. Built to a very good standard, to the drawings of Don Young - the draughtsman highly regarded for his attention to detail. See especially the cab layout.

She has an injector, tender handpump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, coal tray to fit into the tender, tender handbrake, dummy stand boxes, etc.

Measurements : 42” long, 7” wide, 11” high.

Boiler certificate expires : Hydraulic April 2022, Steam June 2019.

Price - £3,450 part exchange very welcome.

3.5” gauge 0-4-0 GER Steam Tram,
very rare, full boiler cert.


Another fine model from my own personal collection. This is the only example of the GER Steam tram I have seen in 3.5” gauge, to LBSC’s design, yet it is featured in the book Building Tich. The boiler is the same as used in Tich with a working pressure of 80psi.

She has an axle pump, tank handpump, mechanical lubricator, dummy whistle and bell, cow catchers, etc.

The rear panel is removable as shown in the last photograph, to give access to the smokebox and cylinder lubricator.

The brown colour in the first two photographs is the closest to the actual colour of the model.

Measurements : 16” long, 7” wide, 10” high.

Boiler certificate expires : Hydraulic Nov 2021, Steam Jan 2019.

Price - £3,450 part exchange very welcome.

5” gauge Metro 4-4-4 Tank engine,
a fabulous model and unique.


I am not aware of any other model of these beautifully proportioned locomotives based on the locomotives built by Kerr Stuart at London and Stoke (see plaque on smokebox saddle). It is a master class in external design - though I do wonder how they managed to get effective adhesion with so much of the weight carried on the two bogies.

The engineering is faultless. I’ve had it on display for many years.

A very special feature, and new to me, is the crank pump worked through inside Stephensons link motion. On the footplate floor is a brass plaque with a pointer showing from 1 to 4. Turning the adjacent handle gives a variable flow of the water from nil, to fully open. The bypass, when closed, does not return water to the tank in the normal fashion, it justs stops pumping, like valve gear in mid position.

She has a crank pump, handpump, extremely large mechanical cylinder, lubricator, etc.

Comes with display track.

Measurements : 45” long, 10” wide, 16” high.

Boiler certificate expires : Hydraulic April 2022, Steam June 2019.

NOW SOLD






















Extremely Rare collectors ¾” scale Davey Paxman 7nhp traction engine, to Greenly's drawings.


This fine quality build model is from my own collection. I bought it very very many years ago and immediately had it in steam briefly just to prove it would hold the pressure and run which it did.

I have recently had my friend, the “Super” painter give it one of his special paint finishes, complete with a lacquered finish.

Now at museum standard again and so rare I have only ever heard of one more.

It was built in 1941, according to the brass plaque on the cylinder block, by A. Stubley of Nottingham.

She has a crankshaft pump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, stump puller cable, etc.

Measurements : 17” long, 11” wide, 12” high. Rear wheel diameter 6”.

Price - £5,250 part exchange very welcome.
