I am proud to announce an exclusive production of the famous Talyllyn Dolgoch in 1/19 scale. The model will be built as the current rebuild design but without the air compressor addition. The model is gas fired with a copper boiler featuring a sight glass, pressure gauge and goodall valve. Valve gear will be slip eccentric but am working to try a design using the correct Allen gear. Cylinders are 2 working slide valve and It will be available in both 32mm and 45mm Gauge. Not adjustable, The 45mm version will have widened frames to allow for the space. Deckplate and buffers will not change as to not spoil the looks of the locomotive.
Dolgoch will be faithfully reproduced in scale thanks to the in person measurements and detail photographs making the best drawing set to date drawn by David Fletcher.
Models will come fully lined and painted.
I am expecting to finalize the working drawings by the 1st of the year and have final 3D drawings. Expecting a prototype by April 2019 hopefully in time to debut at the 2019 16mm AGM.
Tenative pricing is 2150.00USD / 2150.00GBP with VAT
A UK dealer and service point is arranged and will be announced in the near future.
