3 1/2 inch gauge 0-6-0T - stock code 5687

A venerable old tank engine, evidently not run in a long time. The chassis was well-oiled before being laid up and is in decent condition, without a great deal of wear. Fairly stiff to turn over from years of accumulated oil rather than any deficiencies in manufacture - it turns over without tight spots. Superheated copper boiler, feed by axle and hand pumps.

Complete with grate and ashpan, along with an adaptor which appears to have been used to run it on air.

Length 26 inches

gauge 3 1/2 inch
