3 1/2 inch Royal Scot - stock code 6281

A well made "Royal Scot", unusually for this gauge built as a prototypically correct three cylindered engine. Completed in 2009, it's come to us direct from the builder and doesn't look to have done a great deal of running in the intervening five years.

Silver soldered copper boiler by GB Boilers of Bedworth, 80psi working pressure, feed by twin injectors with auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Gunmetal cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, screw reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.

We've had this one in steam, runs very nicely although the injectors have a mind of their own...
