Midland Railway 0-4-4T passenger tank no. 1832

Midland Railway 0-4-4T passenger tank no. 1832. Built circa early 1970’s by Walter (Wally) West using a set of pantograph milled parts produced by Ron Spiers and wheels turned from very good castings, probably by Miller, Swan & Co. The split axles and insulated spacers between the frames allow power to be collected through the non-insulated wheels and frames to the John Hart RM type motor no. 1048. All brake blocks are made from non conductive material to eliminate shorting across the brake rigging. All loco axles have sprung hornblocks. Superbly painted in fully lined Midland Railway passenger livery by Bernard Miller.
