I used to drive them when I was a driver at Aston Shed and had nothing but praise for them, though they did tend to spread the track points, in some of the very old sidings, with their long fixed wheelbase. This one, I suggest, would look better if the name was changed to Black Prince-she has recently been recommissioned. I can provide the name of the company that will do this. She started life as a kit, then my mate in the club got hold of it.
He is a retired Tool Room engineer who has spent most of his life building model locomotives and is the leading prolific model maker in our club. Each one is built to the very best standard. He has built into it all the necessary modifications plus some of his own ideas that make driving and maintenance so much easier.
In the workshop we had it in steam running on the rolling road for ages. Makes enough steam for two locomotives. The axle pump first rate. She had a lovely sharp exhaust beat. Professional silver soldered copper boiler. Boiler certificate expires, Hydraulic April, 2023, Steam April 2020.
