3 1/2 inch gauge "Molly" - stock code 4001

A particularly well-made example of LBSC’s “Molly” design for an LMS Jinty 0-6-0T, with a good deal of extra detailing including dummy vacuum ejector and sanding gear.

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, working pressure 80psi, feed by axle pump driven from the rear axle and hand pump in the side tank.

Gunmetal cylinders, slide valves actuated by Stephenson’s gear with pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator in rear bunker, driven from return crank on rear wheel – this has broken the brazed joint and needs repair.

Screw-down brake acting on all wheels, steam brake operated from cab.

The engine runs well on air.

Length 24 inches

Weight 39 pounds

gauge 3 1/2 inch
