A 7 1/4 Hunslet (depending on scale) would be anywhere between about £4000 (for the materials to build it yourself) and £15 - £18000 for a professionally built model.

As said above, it depends on scale. There are some nice 'Elidir' 0-4-0st around in 7.1/4"g in the £6,000-£10,000 range depending on their age & condition. A good pointer might be to check past S/Hand sales on this, or other sites), that should give you a good idea. If you want to transport it around, or use an estate car then it would be an ideal loco. I had one of the other larger type once, & found transporting it was a pain!
