What would the value of this loco be? I saw that they come compete and ready to run and also in kit form Either way one brand new would be well over 1000. I am leaning towards offloading this engine from my collection with tender included. Any input is greatly appreciated.
Matt, I have a couple of UK locos from this era - one came from Mike T - and they were $500 to $700. Neither were Roundhouse, and the reputation alone would add $200+. Yours has a neat tender and definitely needs a wooden pilot beam or similar. I also bought a RH Argyll new for close to $1000 many years ago.
On the plus side it is a good looking loco from a good builder. On the other side it does not look like a US prototype. (My opinion. My Merlin doesn’t either.) I would think it would sell for $800-$900.
Maybe not on this website, perhaps. There are lots more live steamers on Mylivesteam, sorry mylargescale.com. Others can be found on facebook in the ‘gauge 1 live steamers’ group…
