Title: Some Nice Castings
Post by: sbwhart on December 08, 2011, 03:04:11 AM
Pick these castings up at the clubs annual auction.

They are off a loco inside valve loco, no one new could say which one though, also one cylinder cover is missing but that can be easily fixed, they have a part number cast into them its 3/102 anybody recognise them.


No one wanted them, but I think they were looking at them as loco cylinders, but the more I stared at then the more they stared back and said make me into a twin cylinder vertical marine engine.

Got them for 1  :D :D :D :D

Hi Stew

I'm sure you will make something gorgeous from  them.

X / XXX  for a number is vaguely Reeves-ish. ??

[ Don't bother searching the Reeves site... nowt shows ... ]

I've identified the castings with the help of Dick over on Model Engineer site. They are for Martin Evans 3 1/2" gauge Rob Roy Reeves are selling a set for 90 :bugeye:------------------- what a bargan  :lol:

Mind you if i do make them into twin vertical marine engine it will be a bit of a beast with 1" bores and 2" stroke, I think I'd have to build a model Titanic for them to go in  :D :D :D :D
