7.25″ Romulus 0-4-0 with Tender as NEW LOCO
Built by the noted model engineer Barry Kefford, this loco was finished in 2014 and has been steamed only a handful of times for testing and running in. The loco is as-new with the paintwork in excellent condition – chocolate brown. Hot Chocolate II is named after her predecessor, a 9.5″ gauge locomotive that Barry used to maintain and run. The steel boiler has a full history as would be expected with such a new engine. Wheel arrangement 0-4-0 with a 4w tender. Complete with custom made cover for protection.
Romulus 0-4-0 is a Well-Tank locomotive in 7 1/4″ gauge, designed by Roger Marsh and has Hackworth Valve Gear. This simple and rugged design has resulted in many varied examples being completed which are now running at both club tracks and commercially.
