LIVE STEAM ENGINE MODELS FOR SALE













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”.

Boiler certificate expires : November 2022.

Price - £6,750 part exchange very welcome.

Buyer to collect from Birmingham, 3 mins from M6 J7, or courier available at £1 per mile.

Exhibition standard Royal Chester,
Allchin 1.5” scale traction engine.


A further example of the very finest model engineering. Many years of highly skilled precison engineering are spent in the workshop to finally get such a work of art in miniature. The days of home from work then FED, SHED, BED, have virtually disappeared from our culture.

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.

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

Boiler certificate expires : December 2022.

5” gauge BR Standard 9F, Evening Star, 2-10-0.
New build, full boiler certificate.


This is a really stunning example of the popular and powerful BR Standard 9F 2-10-0.

This one in Black, the colour I prefer. I used to drive them when I was a driver at Aston Shed and had nothing but praise for them, though they did tend to spread the track points, in some of the very old sidings, with their long fixed wheelbase. This one, I suggest, would look better if the name was changed to “Black Prince” - she has recently been recommissioned. I can provide the name of the company that will do this.

She started life as a kit, then my mate in the club got hold of it. He is a retired Tool Room engineer who has spent most of his life building model locomotives and is the leading prolific modeller in our club. Each one is built to the very best standard. He has built into it all the necessary modifications plus some of his own ideas that make driving and maintenance so much easier.

In the workshop we had it in steam running on the rolling road for ages. Makes enough steam for two locomotives. The axle pump first rate. She had a lovely sharp exhaust beat.

Professional silver soldered copper boiler.

Boiler certificate expires : Hydraulic April 2023, Steam April 2020

Measurements : 70” long, 9” wide, 16” high.

Price - £10,950 part exchange very welcome.

5”g Narrow gauge, quite rare, Meter Maid, 0-6-0 with tender.


A really fine quality piece of model engineering that has visited numerous tracks and Sweet Pea Rallies around the Country - see medallions on tender.

Built by a model engineer who included all the refinements necessary to produce a model fit to drive comfortably on public open days running for hour after hour. Has a Professional silver soldered copper boiler.

TWIN injectors, TWIN mechanical cylinder lubricators, TWIN hydrostatic cylinder lubricators, TWIN on/off water valves on tender, regulator extending handle reaches to driving trolley position, very effective handbrake, spark deflector, anti roll bar beneath front buffer beam, carry platform for transit in car, etc.

5” gauge GWR Metro 2-4-0 Suburban Tank Locomotive.


An excellent model built to a very good standard to Martin Evans drawings. Quite rare in my experience and in addition there are “non” in preservation. They worked the Fast London Suburban service.

This one has an axle pump, handpump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, Handbrake, Tank water gauge glass, etc.

Not too heavy and ideal for a beginner to run on the club track pulling 6 to 8 passengers.

Rare 3.5” gauge LNER Gresley Pacific
A3 locomotive “Solario“ 4-6-2.


This beautiful example of the famous Flying Scotsman A3 class of Nigel Gresley’s “Solario” has been run in steam before latterly spending very many years on display indoors.

However, when I gave it a hydraulic boiler test one tube had developed a leak.( This can be repaired by using a rod threaded with a cone at both ends and tightened to give a perfect seal so that it can be run-but as it cannot qualify for a boiler certificate it can still be run on a private garden railway.) It was built as a twin cylinder model to make maintenance very much easier.

Ideally it can become a fine indoor display once more.

She has an axle pump, tender handpump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, gunmetal cylinders, tender handbrake, etc.

Measurements : 55” long, 7” wide, 11” high.

Boiler certificate expires : n/a

Price - £3,750 part exchange very welcome.

An extremely good example of the ever popular Martin Evan’s Simplex.

Built by an experienced model engineer with an eye for meticulous detail. Ideal for beginners as it is very accessible for operating and firing whilst on the move.

3.5” gauge SR 3 cylinder Schools Class, “Wellington”.


An excellent example of top notch engineering - took for ever to complete and then performed brilliantly at club level, plus being entered in exhibitions.

There are not many model engineers left who would tackle such a complex small, but powerful, three cylinder locomotive.

She has an axle pump, tender handpump, mechanical cylinder lubricator, and comes with the two carrying, storage, wooden cases.

Measurements : 45” long, 7” wide, 10” high. Driving wheel diameter 5.25”.

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.

Buyer to collect from Birmingham, 3 mins from M6 J7, or courier available at £1 per mile.
Overseas buyers please email me your postcode for an accurate shipping quote.
















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.

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 - £2,950 part exchange very welcome.

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”.
