5 inch gauge 0-4-0T "Ajax" - stock code 9561

A 5 inch gauge 0-4-0T, rolls freely and attempts three quarters of a turn of the wheels on air.

The chassis is nicely made, fit and finish of the motionwork and valve gear good. Although evidently steamed in the past, from the condition of the boiler it doesn't appear to have done a great deal of running.
