Castings for 3.5" gauge 0-6-0 Rob Roy live steam locomotive.
This is the well known Martin Evans design based on the Caledonian Railway tank engine and is often quoted as an ideal starter kit for a beginner to the hobby.
Castings as shown in the picture. All are untouched except for the six wheels, which have been bored out.
Gun metal cylinders, steam chests, slide valves, and covers. Eccentric straps and hornblocks I think are bronze, but could be wrong, they may be brass. Wheels are cast iron. Cast grate included. This is not a throw together kit, the castings have to be machined to size to build this kit, which is a good beginning to the model engineering hobby.
AJ Reeves quote this little lot at over £300 so grab a bargain! All other parts to build this model are available from Reeves and other suppliers.
Because of the weight there is a hefty postal charge for this.
Good luck bidding and thanks for looking.
