Want recomendation for copper boiler builder

Can anyone recommend a supplier who can build a boiler for a small narrow guage loco (e.g. 0-4-0 or similar) I have tried contacting several companies that I found by Google but either had no response or an unsatisfactory response (making me feel they don't have the experience)

Have you checked through our Trade section on here? There are some in there.

Try Western steam - Helen Verral has been making boilers for years and she has a great reputation

I took delivery of a superb boiler from Southern Boiler works earlier this year and suggest you contact Paul Tompkins to see what he can do for you. Take a look at their website below.

Thanks all for these recommendations. In the next three month I am intending to commission a boiler for Bridget on which I am currently working.

Steam Technology. TIG welded and soldered bushes. Andy and Ryan are great guys, I've had a Romulus boiler from them already for the club, I have a Lion boiler on order due for delivery Christmas, and they will be getting the order for my 7.25" MW shortly. Lead time is about 7 months.
