5 inch gauge 0-4-0 "Xerxes" - stock code 4980

This came from a collection of several engines by the same builder, all unused for many years, all - beneath the grime - well made in the first place and in rather better mechanical condition than the paintwork would lead you to believe. This one turns over freely and runs on air, copper boiler with superheaters, feed by axle and hand pumps, Walschaert's valve gear driving slide valves with a pole reverser in the cab.

Length 24 inches

gauge 5 inch
