I have for sale a comprehensive set of parts to build a 3 1/2" gauge Black 5 (LBSC Doris). This includes the following:

Commercially made boiler, CE marked and bushed for all fittings. This was built in 2019 so very recent, complete with all paperwork and certificates.

Majority of castings as shown in the photos below, D&C wheels and axel boxes machined. Main frames profiled and holes drilled on milling machine.

Every conceivable laser cut component from MEL including running boards, coupling rods, all valve gear rods, expansion links, expansion link frame (scaled from 5" gauge), cab (also scaled from 5") bogie frames, complete 4000 gallon tender scaled from 5 inch so much closer to scale than LBSC's with side tops rolled to radius.

Complete set of drawings, instruction and drawings from MEL with a CD of photos, copies of original Crewe works GA and sections for Black 5. I also have the ME articles in .pdf format that I can email to the buyer or put on a memory stick.

Boiler alone cost £2000!

Please email for more information and pictures.
