This is a 3D printed item, using a fine ABS like resin and is a complete body (with separate roof and sand boxes) to create a OO scale narrow gauge railway loco (4mm / foot) running on 9mm track.

This is a local community railway loco and was commissioned by a customer who had seen the "as-built" 1928 version and was looking to add an example of the Kerr Stuart number 4415 in rebuilt form for its early days on the Ffestiniog railway (from 1929), with revised exhaust and lowered cab roof.

Apparently, this version of the engine mainly worked slate trains between Minffordd and the Harbour Station, which required the lowered roof to fit the loading gauge on this section of the line. When the Ffestiniog Railway could not afford to buy her, she was used as a contractor’s locomotive before being moved to Ireland and later Mauritius where she was modified further (see separate listing for that version with larger sandboxes).

The original loco is currently owned by the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways Heritage Company and is undergoing restoration.

Photos 1 and 2 show the body loosely assembled (without any clean-up or prep). Photos 3, 4 and 5 are of an example of the items as you will receive them (separate body, roof and sandboxes).
The last 2 photos show the KATO 11-109 chassis that it is designed to run on and is also available as an option.
These are genuine photos taken with a full frame 35mm SLR and not digital representations. 
PECO couplings and 0.5mm brass rod added are also required to complete the locomotive (not included in the sale). It is designed to run on a KATO 11-103 or KATO 11-109 chassis (not supplied) that simply clips into the body. It also uses two standard Peco GR-102 009 couplings (not supplied) that slot neatly into the bodywork.

You simply need to remove the two formers from the base, remove the supports from the door and window openings and smooth the roof. The holes for brass rod will need a quick clean out with a 0.5mm drill bit and brass rod added (if required) to form the sand pipework and operating rods. It is then ready to paint / attach the roof / fit to the chassis (available as an option) and add the couplings (not supplied).

Bear in mind the size of these items when looking at the detail in the photos. The loco body is 59mm long, 26 wide and 35mm high and scaled to 4mm to the foot.

Please ask if you have any questions or if you need more than are listed.
