2 1/2 inch gauge 4-6-0 - stock code 6978

A venerable 2 1/2 inch gauge coal-fired 4-6-0, nicely made with copper boiler, feed by axle and hand pumps, gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear, displacement lubricator behind the buffer beam.

Looks not to have been run in years, it will require recommissioning and at the very least a new gauge glass.
