3 1/2 inch gauge Southern Mongoliper - stock code 3744

A 3 inch gauge Southern 2-6-0 to LBSCs Betty design not a commonly seen model these days (or possibly ever no idea how many were made, certainly nothing like the number of Maisies and Doriss).

This is a largely complete engine, its missing a cab and pressure gauge but could be put back in to running condition with a minimum of effort (indeed, if you dont mind what people say about you at the club, you may consider a cab optional and do without it).

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler with combustion chamber, 80psi working pressure, feed by axle pump with hand pump in tender. Gunmetal cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaerts gear with screw reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.

Running gear and motion is in good condition, paintwork on the running boards is poor really the whole engine wants a repaint once the cab is fitted.

Locomotive 29 inches
Tender 18 inches

gauge 3 1/2 inch
