Hallo Martin. It looks to be a boiler for the Gauge I "Project" 0-6-0 loco based on a Midland 4F.

Hi Martin

I'm sure the boiler is as Mick has said for a "Project" as are the set of frames shown on the right of the picture, the frames etc on the left would appear to be for the G1 "Dee". Both designs are described in books published by the Gauge 1 Association, see The project design was producedfor the beginner but I think even in the revised books there are still a number of grey areas. The Design is based in the ex SECR class D locomotives, a pretty little locomotive.

Hi Martin,

My last sentence should have read :- The Dee design is based on the ex SECR class D locomotives, a pretty little locomotive.

Hi Martin,

What you have there is a G1 Dee loco frames and G1 Project wheels and boiler. The boiler looks to be a commercially made item.
