‘LAWLEY’ Freelance Live Steam 0-6-0T

This model is now discontinued.

Lawley is a freelance side tank locomotive with design inspirations from Hunslet. The loco is internally gas fired with a centre flue boiler. The boiler is fitted with a water gauge glass which will allow for continuous running with the addition of a boiler filler system. The model is gauge adjustable from 32mm (‘O’ gauge) to 45mm (‘1’ gauge) and has insulated wheels as standard. The axles run in bronze bearings and all the rods and valve gear are manufactured from stainless steel.

The engine is available in manual or radio control versions. The cab roof flips up and over sideways to give access to the gas, water and lubricator fillers. The boiler is fitted with a water blow down valve and the displacement lubricator has an under floor drain valve.

The model is built from stainless steel and brass, and with the correct maintenance, will give a lifetime of pleasure.
