‘MORTIMER’ Live Steam 0-4-0ST

This model is now discontinued.

Now re-introduced to the range, Mortimer is a freelance 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive with design inspirations from Avonside and Peckett.

The loco is internally gas fired with a centre flue boiler. 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 the loco is fitted with our standard chopper couplings and tilting cab roof.

The engine is available either 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 level check valve and the displacement lubricator has an under floor drain valve.
