5 inch 0-4-0 Tich - stock code 1524

A 5 inch gauge industrial tank locomotive, scaled up from the LBSC 3 1/2 inch gauge "Tich" drawings with modifications. The rear frames have been extended to accomodate a coal bunker and the engine is fitted with radial valve gear. Built in 1997 the engine could use new paint and tidying up. However, it is a well-built little engine, runs well and has 18 months left on a club boiler certificate. Complete with carrying/transport stand, firing shovel and tools.
