5 Inch Alice quarry hunslet
Amongst the various types of quarry Hunslet the smallest and most common is the Alice.
Our model represents the original "Alice" as originally built, and comes in the livery quoted on the Hunslet order, painted Midland Railway colour throughout. She comes with virtually everything that was present on the full size engine.
Twin cylinders with automatic drains, Stephensons link valve gear with cab reverser, screw down brake gear, hand and axle boiler feed pumps, coal fired copper boiler, displacement lubricator, water and pressure gauges, etc. Alice will pull up to four adults on a level track and is as capable and characterful as her full size counterparts.
The 2015 batch of Alice models included a leap in detail bringing it more in line with the larger high detail models our customers have come to expect. Additional details include: working doors on the cab back, brass shroud around the base of the safety valves, firing tools holders & high detail double dummy lubricators on the saddle tank!
