Lemaitre chimney for SR Q-class 0-6-0?

Postby chris_mccarthy » Thu Apr 21, 2016 1:22 pm

Does anyone know, please, where I can get a Lemaitre chimney of a size suitable for a SR Q class 0-6-0?

A few suppliers have the larger sized version for a Lord Nelson but I can't track down one suitable for a Q class.

Craftsman kits used to make one for a King Arthur (which would at least have been worth a try for the Q) but they are not responding to emails and I believe may have stopped trading.

Any thoughts on a current source would be much appreciated.

Have tried South Eastern Finecast?
IIRC they have optional chimneys with the Schools class (perhaps others?) and they will supply spares.
Cheers,

Mark.

Chris,

I realise this is now quite an old thread but whilst searching for a different SR chimney for a friend I noticed that PDK list a Lemaitre chimney for the Q class, reference SC8, if you haven't found one yet.

Regards,

Richard

Thanks very much, Richard, for spotting such an old request.
I did in fact manage to get a white metal one from SEF and also a turned brass one was given to me but I don’t know the origin. Might well have been the PDK one you mention.
Again my thanks for following up,
Kind regards,
Chris
