Product description

Roundhouse Bertie is a basic series freestyle 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive. 

Saddle tanks were probably the most common type of small locomotive found on British narrow gauge railways and Bertie is typical of the style. 

Bertie would be a good first locomotive for anyone thinking of starting out with live steam and you can personalise it to your own requirements with the additional parts and accessories available.

These include a brass chimney cap, cylinder covers and dummy valve gear.

Bertie uses a gas fired boiler and slip-eccentric valve gear so once you have steam up you simply open the regulator and give him a gentle push in the direction you want him to go.
