  • Location: Taunton, Taunton, Somerset, United Kingdom

Bundle of items for making a 5" gauge GWR Mogal 46xx 2-6-0 loco.

This is a project I've started, as can be seen from photos. Main frames are riveted to buffer beams, horn blocks machined and main axle boxes fitted with springs, hornstays and spring plates. Pony truck has been started with pony wheel axle boxes part machined, pressure pads and centre pin finish machined.

All the items shown in the photos which include:

Machined / part finished items:
• Mainframe assembly (from laser cut side frames) - slight surface rust only from storage. with motion plate fitted, horn blocks machined and main axle boxes fitted with springs, hornstays and spring plates
• Pony truck parts (including finish machined pressure pads & centre pin, part machined axle blocks) - steel parts need a clean up before continuing & one side stay loose as per photo.

Castings / Other Materials:
• Cast iron driving wheel castings x6
• Cast iron Bogie / Pony truck wheels x2
• Cast iron brake shoe ring x1
• Cast iron cylinder block x2
• Cast iron rear cylinder cover x2
• Cast iron front cylinder cover x2
• Gun metal eccentric strap pair x2 (for 4 eccentrics)
• Gun metal guide bar bracket x2
• Cast iron smoke box door x1
• Cast iron smoke box ring x1

• Gun metal safety valve cover x1
• Cast iron smoke box saddle x1
• Gun metal buffer x2
• Brass tube smoke box material x1
• Full set of drawings, including for tender and GWR standard fittings (no tender parts or materials included)
I've loved the build so far but progress has slowed and a house renovation project now takes priority and I need to remove the distraction! :-(

Current castings alone over £1,100 from Kennions

Any questions feel free to ask and happy to talk through what I've done so far.
