3 1/2 inch Atlantic "Maisie" - stock code 5951

A well made example of a Great Northern Atlantic, built to LBSC's excellent "Maisie" design.

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, 90psi working pressure, feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.

I ran one of these myself some years ago - in this gauge an Atlantic is an easy to handle engine, a comfortable one-lift in and out of the car. On the track, big wheels and wide firebox give it a surprising amount of speed and stamina, which meant I didn't hold up the 5 inch gauge tank engines running around.
