LNWR A class 0-8-0 compound no. 2545

LNWR A class 0-8-0 compound no. 2545. Built from scratch in 2006 by Bill Davis, (a good friend of mine for many years). I’m now very happy to own such an unusual example of his fabulous craftsmanship. He has built this model of a 3 cylinder compound prototype with a working representation of the inside low pressure cylinder. It took him 192.5 hours to build and it cost the client £2,200. The Alan Harris (AGH) wheels and crank axle alone cost £609.75. Fitted with an ABC Mini S /Maxon motor and gear unit, collecting power by the American system. Most castings are from the Hobby Horse range. Expertly painted by John Cockcroft.
