L&Y Highflyer 4-4-2
« on: May 04 2019 08:39 »
I noticed a provincial auction house in Bath had this for sale last week, but although the estimate was very low, I don't know what it fetched.  Looked like a very nice model, scratchbuilt in brass, live steam, no tender.  It was described as "1/2 scale" which I assume means half inch scale.  If it was half scale it would be worth ten times the estimate for scrap!

Anyone know who bought it?

Here is a picture.  Looks model engineering rather than model making with dome headed screws holding it together and of course no tender, but still very nice.  Would be nice to see it running at a GTG one day.

Described by the auctioneers as a 4-6-2 by the way.  D'oh!
