3 1/2 inch gauge "Rob Roy" 0-6-0T - stock code 8790

A well-built 3 1/2 inch gauge 0-6-0T to Martin Evans' "Rob Roy" design, it's recently come in as part exchange against a 7 1/4 inch narrow gauge locomotive.

Unused by the previous owner, he kept it for display in the house. It appears to have had little use, boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test with certificate issued for same.

Chassis is fairly stiff to turn over, with a lock up which feels like something meeting something immoveable. Needs investigation (unless you too just want to display it).
