5 inch gauge B1 "Steinbok" - stock code 5838

A well-made example of Martin Evans' ever popular B1 "Springbok" design. Paintwork is getting tired, but the engine itself proved full of beans on test - it's free steaming and goes particularly well.

Silver soldered copper boiler, feed by twin injectors and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Gunmetal cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear. Mechanical lubricator.
