This is a 00 scale model of the 1832 locomotive Tayleur, the first engine built by the famous Vulcan Foundry, Lancashire. This model originated as a jumbo-ised N Gauge engine, suitably altered to 00 operative tolerances and to fit proprietary parts (notably the tender wheelbase for motorising), enabling simple construction. The matching motorised Planet tender is separately available.
(Note: various materials are provided, however, WSF and BSF will require more preparation for smooth painting that FUD and FED.)
While most of the engine is provided, the following parts have been omitted due to fragility, clearances or the need to sand the printed model:
Tie-bars between axleboxes
Loco-tender coupling (some drilled metal and pins will suffice)
The following additional parts need to be sourced separately to complete (web links given as examples only):
Hornby 08 wheels & rods (rods to be cut down to 0-4-0):
(Both available via this page)
I hope you enjoy this unusual and eye-catching model.
