Wanted, Loco Project

Post by gall335i » Fri Jul 15, 2016 7:38 pm

Hi guys,

Not sure if this is aloud so remove if needs be.

I have recently been working on a 7 1/4" gauge 9F but knee problems are getting worse and I can't move the thing about anymore, so I've since sold that and looking for a new project.

I'm looking for an engine as a quicker build than starting from scratch, so has anyone got any models lying under there benches that there thinking about moving on please let me know.

Something suitable to run at our events would be nice.

Email details to,

Andy, and anyone else who may be interested, there is a part built Crab in the West Midlands for sale. Nicely built, there are the parts shown in the photos, probably drawings, and possibly driving wheels. It is thought that they may have been returned to Reeves, in which case replacements should be forthcoming. The tender frames appear to be secondhand and not to the DY drawing, presumably bought as a quick start. The boiler is by GB, new last year, and comes with paperwork.
