Asking Price SALE AGREED

An exceptional miniature which has clearly been maintained diligently throughout its life so far! This one was built by John Rex of John Rex Model Engineers in around 1997. It was sold to the current owner as a brand-new engine needing the paintwork doing – the owner rose to the challenge and painted the engine in a distinctive, and appealing, light green which sets the engine apart and looks wonderful when polished up alongside the brass work. Since then, the engine has stayed in the same ownership and has been steamed regularly.

Key Features:

  • Commercially made, welded steel boiler of 1997. Produced by Lou Rex and is accompanied by a folder of original boiler paperwork and historic boiler reports.
  • Two-speed, single crank compound arrangement. Fitted with desirable road locomotive fittings such as belly tanks, motion covers, a bunker extension and solid flywheel.
  • Mechanical water pump and steam injector fitted, as standard.
  • Steam whistle, ‘Foster’ mechanical lubricator and Ramsbottom style pressure release valves fitted to the cylinder block.
  • Excellent paint throughout, finished to a high standard and finished with superb pinstriping. The pinstriping is wearing thin in places but only as a result of careful cleaning over the years and it certainly doesn’t take away from the look of the engine.
  • Fitted with rubber tyres mounted over metal strakes. Also accompanied by a matching riding trailer which is finished in matching colours.
  • Registered for road use with a current V5C.
  • Speak to us about boiler testing options for this example going forward.
  • To include a half-day tuition session, if requested by the buyer. 

Overall, an excellent outfit which will give the buyer plenty of fun!
