5 inch gauge 14xx 0-4-2T - stock code 3540

A kit-built 14xx tank engine which was professionally assembled and painted some years ago. It only ran on a couple of occasions, the wheelbase proving too long for the owners rather compact garden layout, which is now served by a fleet of Maxitrak 0-4-0s in both steam and electric variants.

Silver-soldered copper boiler, working pressure 80psi, feed by axle pump and injector with hand pump in side tank. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's reversing gear with screw reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.
