5 inch gauge 0-6-4T - stock code 5132

Not exactly sure what this one is - it appears a fairly standard 0-6-0T, nicely made, attached to the rear of which are large trailing frame extensions and a four wheeled pony truck. The whole thing has been kept well oiled over the years which, while doing nothing for its appearance has preserved the brightwork beneath in good condition.

Silver soldered copper boiler, neatly made with good solder penetration complete with some fittings including clacks and regulator. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, screw reverser in cab. Axle pump driven by eccentric from leading axle.

A well-advanced, large engine which could be completed for modest extra expenditure.

Length 41 inches
