To start - Simon would be proud of me. I used his suggestion on using the 2R nomenclature to start this thread.
I purchased this hulk of a K4 around 14 years ago and posted it on this forum, but we have several new people who know much more history so I thought it would be worth posting again.
Does anyone have a guess on information on the manufacturer of this model? It is definitely 17/64 scale as you can see when posted next to a Williams brass K4 that is at least close enough to scale for reference.
Thoughts? It needs quite a bit of work and is missing the motor. The valve gear also binds on it, so I have assumed it would always just be a display piece, but who know?
