LSWR Adams Radial 4-4-2T No. 492

LSWR 492

Believed to have been built from the Shedmaster kit, but it could be scratch built and painted to top quality by persons unknown. This superb model has the original Adams design of chimney. For comparison with another Adams Radial that I have had in my collection, but with twin slidebars and Drummond chimney, follow this link. Adams Radial no. 125

LSWR Adams Radial 4-4-2T No. 125: Scratch built by person unknown with Drummond chimney and twin slidebars. Purchased from Solent Railwayana Auctions. Original paintwork stripped and modifications made, including new gears and motor by myself. Re-painted into the lovely Drummond livery by John Cockcroft. This delightful loco runs very smoothly and easily pulls six bogie coaches. For comparison with another Adams Radial that I have in my collection, but with single slidebars and a stovepipe chimney, follow this link. Adams Radial stovepipe chimney
