3 1/2 inch gauge GWR 0-6-0 tender locomotive "Iris" - stock code 7196

A venerable example of "Iris", LBSC's 3 1/2 inch gauge GWR tender engine - it was what you built if you fancied something a bit more ambitious than a "Juliet".

Turns over freely and well oiled up after it was last used, it has recently come in with two other engines from the same collection, a "Tich" and rather nice LNER B1.

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

Locomotive 23 inches
Tender 17 inches

gauge 3 1/2 inch
