"In view of my own experience of building locomotives in 2.5", 5" and 7.25" gauges the 14xx seemed a natural choice for Silver Crest Models first engine in the larger gauge - not least due to the resounding success of this model in 5" gauge.

This is an attractive and manageable engine in 7.25" gauge which will provide a quality driving experience for the enthusiast.

As an award winning model engineer I am delighted to have contributed to the development of this fine model"

7.25" Gauge Live Steam....

 
This large scale represents a specialist area of the hobby, but a thriving one. Locomotives can get seriously big with some Standard Class models e.g. Britannia Class, approaching half a metric ton in weight. Some large narrow gauge examples even heavier. As a consequence entry to this market requires serious organisation for the transport and handling of models, but also deep pockets! That said, if you are looking for the ultimate driving experience then 7.25" gauge could be for you. At 1.5" to the foot scale you are getting closer to full size. These large locomotives tend to incorporate more prototypical features and the driver's experience is about as real as it gets in model form.
 
We have only manufactured one model in this scale to date. The GWR 14xx. This was chosen because it is indisputably a beautiful engine, but in 7.25" gauge also provides a compact and affordable entry into the larger gauge.
