3 1/2 inch gauge 0-6-0 switcher - stock code 10272

A 3 1/2 inch gauge 0-6-0 switcher, built to a good standard, nicely detailed and professionally painted.

The engine runs well on air in both directions. On hydraulic test at twice working pressure the boiler appeared structurally sound, although with two leaking stays in the firebox which will require attention.
