3 1/2″ V4 – Bantam Cock 2

This 3 1/2″ gauge V4 – Bantam Cock live steam locomotive is the second of this type of engine for Paul to build, his first being completed in 1993 and this one being completed in 2015 which he has named Teldya. He first started building it in 2012, but it lay idle while he was busy running Paviersteam and then he started working on it in his spare time in Oct 2014. Paul’s first Bantam Cock was named Nuff Said, which has recently been found and purchased by Paul’s son; so much to Paul’s delight it is back in the family and the two sister’s can be pictured together below; recently taken at the Leyland 3 1/2″ Rally.
