An exciting engine from Doncaster, Millie is a small, simple locomotive. It has the same sized cylinders (with slide valves) as the mainstream Roundhouse engines, but they are controlled by an effective slip eccentric valve gear. The boiler is externally fired by gas and is generously sized for a long run. For an even longer run, there is an optional top up system and water gauge glass. The cab houses the gas regulator, steam regulator and displacement lubricator. Styling is straightforward with large side tanks encompassing the firebox. The cab front sheet has brass spectacle rings and the top is curled back slightly to offer no real weather protection to the crew! The gas tank fills the bunker and at the front end the chimney is brass capped. Millie is available in all of the Roundhouse liveries – the boiler being black in any livery. Being outside wheeled, the gauge, either 32mm or 45mm has to be specified when ordering from us here at Brandbright.
Dimensions: Length (over couplers) 280mm, Width 108mm, Height 145mm
