Title: Part built 7.25 inch gauge freelance 2-8-4 tank locomotive.

Description: For sale is a part built freelance 2-8-4 tank, started many years ago but stalled due to other projects. It is a rolling chassis and machined cylinders. Boiler, see details below, and smoke box with chimney..

There are various other bits with it, valve bobbins and some odds and sods. There is some surface rust as it has been stored in a garage for some time..

The boiler looks to be home made. It has plates soft soldered on to allow a hydraulic test to be carried out. We found the inner firebox to have bulged slightly on the crown, it looks to have girder stays fitted but may require crown stays fitting..

Sold as seen, it is well built but requires cleaning. One cylinder has been removed to allow design work to start on the valve gear..
