3 1/2 inch gauge Britannia "Coeur-de-Lion" - stock code 6440

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Britannia, "Coeur-de-Lion", recently come in part-exchange for a new Feldbahn from a collection in Ireland. Built to the popular LBSC design, it's a well made engine that appears not to have done a lot of work - in its last owner's hands it was used only for display.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Gunmetal cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, screw reverser in cab, mechanical lubricator.

We had this one running outside this morning - it goes well, there's some video of it here.

Hydraulic test @160psi for 80psi working pressure, expires 20-1-2019

Locomotive 35 inches
Tender 18 inches
