5 inch narrow gauge 0-6-0 petrol-hydraulic shunter - stock code 8289

A 5 inch narrow gauge petrol-hydraulic 0-6-0 shunter, bought for an extensive garden railway in Scotland but never run there.

When, last year at 88 years old, its owner decided ground level 5 inch narrow gauge getting a bit heavy to deal with, the whole collection came down here in a (very large) van.

Assembled from all the right bits - Kawasaki electric start petrol engine, hydrostatic transmission, chain drive with taperlock sprockets on the axles - the previous owner never ran the locomotive on his railway, although tells us the engine turned over freely on the starter.

From the condition of wheels, chains and sprockets it appears to have had very little use - it will, however, require at least the battery charging and fresh fuel to recommission for running.
