5" Simplex 0-6-0 live steam tank loco for sale. Part built but most workdone and looks to be done to a very high standard. Have a look at the photos above as the finishon the wheels, motion and valve linkage is excellent. Even the chassis is a work of art.
The builder decided to build 6 Simplex locos, yes 6! Apparently he and a friend wanted one each and so built 6, 4 of which were sold to finance the two they kept for themselves. This was the one he kept, and typical, never got finished !! So he was an experienced Simplex builder. He also built some very nice stationary models. The boiler also looks well made however will need bushes for the front clacks. Having the clacks at either side of the front is considered a much better way of getting steam into the boiler than into the backhead. Boiler will need testing once this is done.
The quality of the chassis and smokebox riviting are a good sign of the general workmanship. The platework is also excellent.
The is a hand pump in the side tank and also an axe pump.
Priced very much to sell. Wonderful project of what looks to be extremely well engineered.
Price: £ SOLD (No additional VAT to add)
Happy to consider a loco, traction, or stationary/marine/aero engines as a part exchange.
