3 1/2 inch gauge "Virginia" 4-4-0 - stock code 5618

An American 4-4-0 to LBSC's popular "Virginia" design - we're having a bit of a Transatlantic festival at the moment with this, "Marie E", "Lucky 7", Wabash Mogul and 7 1/4 inch gauge Baldwin C19 all in stock.

A nicely made older engine, this one runs nicely. Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by injector and axle pump with a hand pump in the tender. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear, pole reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.

There are a pair of well-made boxes for both locomotive and tender.
