7¼″ Gauge Society

First Prize at The Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition Autumn 2023

The prize winning locomotive was displayed on the 7 1/4 inch gauge Society stand at the Midlands Engineering exhibition. The locomotive is Bruce Harvey's absolutely superb LNER N2 tank, which has been at Alexandra Palace in a part-built state for several years. It is, of course, standard gauge. Bruce is a young man, now 28, who started it as an engineering apprentice 6 years or so ago. he uses all the modern engineering techniques such as laser cutting, CNC machining, CAD drawing and 3D printing, and the locomotive is of the highest standard. It was entered in the competition in clas 3, "Locomotives 5" & 7 1/4" gauges and above", and deservedly won First Prize in this section. See further images of the event in the gallery.
