3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" - stock code 4427

Underneath the fairly mediocre paintjob is a well-made large-boilered, Walschaert’s gear “Tich” – typical of the type it goes like the clappers, the wheels disappear in a blur when opened up!

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by axle pump with hand pump in side tank. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert’s gear, pole reverser in cab, mechanical lubricator.
