For sale! Pair of 10¼ Gauge Cromar White bogies

As previously advertised a pair of 10¼ Gauge Cromar White bogies.

Bought by me for a possible wheelchair coach project at Ingfield but now not needed.

Originally used under a Severn Lamb coach, wheels are wide but profiled to 9.5/8″ Back to Back dimensions. One wheel on each axle is loose and rotates smoothly in an oilite bush (very clever) but could easily be made fixed using a steel bush in its place. At the same time the bogies could be made into powered bogies or regauged to 7¼” easily enough.

Major dimensions are:- Length – 600mm
Overall width – 400mm over bearings, 475mm over de-railing bars (could be cut down) Overall Height – 210mm
Wheelbase – 400mm Height to bolster – 175mm
Bolster Pin Dia – 21mm
Wheel Dia – 150mm x 40mm
Axle Dia – 35mm Bearings – 25mm Take Up Bearings with die springs.

Collection from Eastleigh but could Pallet at cost. £600 ovno
Phone or message 07974 928014‬.

0-6-0 for sale 10 1/4″

Originally an 0-6-4 tank engine built by Mr Murcott senior in approximately 1965. It was purchased by RVR in 2014, with the Curwen Atlantic and Bullock which all came from Wales. 

I brought the loco from RVR in late 2014, stripped it down for overhaul and that’s as far as I got. 

The loco is  available in strip down form. Motion still on chassis. The boiler has a new valid 10 year hydraulic on it. Has an axle pump and buffalo injector. Cylinder bore is 4″ by 4.5″ stroke. 9″ wheels. Wheelbase is 2ft overall.

It is not to scale proportions but will make a very nice over scale loco. 

Asking £8000. Please contact Adam Jeffrey
