ADVANCED KITS

These kits require forming and soldering, all machining has been completed for you.

Each kit comes will a full set of instructions with over 30 pages of pictures, diagrams and text detailing how to form and assemble your loco.

For advanced kits, the inside port block/cylinder unit comes as a 'loose assembly' with pistons and valves in place ready for you to check over and seal. For outside cylinders, the main cylinder will be a machined assembly with a piston, and a separate etching to form the cylinder wrapper.

Each kit contains all the screws, 'o' rings, nuts, rivets, springs, wires, pipes and a pressure gauge to complete the loco. The boiler is pre-built, tested, and will come with a construction certificate.

The work will involve forming sheet metal, drilling pilot holes out to size, tapping threads into holes, and the use of soft and silver solder.

Replacements for individual components can be supplied, providing they are returned to us to identify issues. For etched items and laser cut pieces there will be a small charge depending on the size of part required. Whitemetal castings returned to us with stamped addressed packaging will be free.

 

For all our customers we are happy to answer any build queries over the phone or via email. We offer soldering and forming lessons in our workshop a few times a year, so keep an eye on our News page for the latest dates.

 We understand that things can go wrong, and very small parts can get easily lost, so spare parts for all our kits can be purchased separately
