Lilian is a freelance locomotive which was started by one of our customers who decided to move on to a larger gauge of locomotive, 15 inch gauge which we completed for him back in 2013 and will be featured in this section. The chassis was sold through us when a new customer came to us as he was moving up from 16mm scale to 10 1/4 inch and is currently building a new line at his home. He wanted something based on a Hunslet, a Peckett and a few other designs all rolled into one. After some thinking I produced an initial fag packet sketch which he liked. Although small she is well balanced and much loved by its owners. The original design was a beefed up Roger Marsh “Romulus” of 7 1/4 inch gauge. She is proving to be a real little workhorse on her new line.
