I have an almost finished 7 1/4 inch gauge Milner Hunslet which I have decided to part with as I am giving up on 7 1/4 inch gauge as it’s becoming too heavy to move around and I doubt I shall finish the engine now, despite it being almost finished. The chassis runs on air and the engine had a club hydraulic test a few years ago (West Wilts SME) before we moved house and substantially downsized. It is now out of ticket.

The main outstanding work is to complete the boiler feed steam and water pipework for which most fittings and tube is present.

The copper boiler is by John Ellis and is brand new, unfired. The saddle tank is professionally welded stainless steel. The valve gear departs from the original Milner design using a different steam chest arrangement with better valve events and the rolling chassis was made for me by Bob Morgan a professional engineer at the time living in Bristol. (He has since moved to France). It has a pair of mechanical lubricators beneath the front footplate feeding the cylinders. There are boxes of small bits, such as a pair of gauge glass protectors, two vertical clack valves, a large injector for the right hand side, a special spanner for adjusting the safety valves, spare valves, as yet unfitted works plates and numerous other bits required to give the engine a good level of detail.

Also included are moving trolleys and a rolling road. Please either phone or drop me a message for details.
