Pound £3,250 3 1/2 Martin Evans Conway Manchester

Published date: September 29, 2020

I have decided after a long hard think yo sell my 3 1/2 gauge Martin Evans Conway, the only reason being is that I do not use it.

When I got the loco it was just as every other Conway, so to be different I stripped it and made it look as much like an open cab Quarry Hunslet.

The loco is ultra reliable and is very well built, there is very little wear in the motion and it steams really well.

As a bit of a trial I made a rose bud grate, this was a huge success so it stayed in use.  Water delivery is via 2 x injectors and a hand pump as back up, the injectors are fed from the tender and the pump from the saddle. It has one superheater element which is a stainless radiant type.

Both the loco and tender have storage / transport boxes.

The hydraulic test is due on the 4th of 2023 and steam is 8th 2021, so she is ready to play.

I will miss this little loco, it has given me hours of enjoyment.

The price is ONO but I won't accept peanus.

Thanks for looking.
