This approach also allows you to create your own freelance locomotive designs based around a Roundhouse chassis and boiler. These kits require time to build, however with care and patience you can build a model to be proud of.

Roundhouse Engineering kits contain all the necessary parts together with detailed instructions and require only basic tools for assembly.

No machining is necessary though a small number of holes may require further drilling. Painting of all items is left to you so that you can choose any colour that you require.

Pressure vessels (boilers) are supplied fully built, tested and certified and only require the relevant fittings screwing on.

The bodywork is in 'etched brass' form and requires soft soldering. Difficult shapes are pre-formed for you and any folding required is done with the help of 'fold lines', etched into the brass.

Chassis kits can be supplied with insulated wheels if specially requested. This will enable the loco to operate with track pickup electric locomotives without shorting out the electrics. An extra charge is made for this feature.

Please note that kits include all necessary parts, but do not include the following.
  • Paints
  • Lubricants
  • Solder
  • Buffer beam overlays.
  • Cylinder covers.
  • Works plates.
  • R/C Electronic components
These are available to purchase if required. Insulated wheels are also available with all kits, please state preference when ordering.
