5 inch gauge BR 9F 2-10-0 - stock code 8114

A 5 inch gauge 9F, presented very much in its "working clothes" - immensely grubby and with flat black "end of BR" paintwork.

Well-built originally, it has been used regularly for club running, competing in IMLEC several times. Although the wet header leaks profusely - it needs stripping out and a new gasket making - the boiler is sound, the engine runs well on air.

Complete with club boiler history dating back to 2007, since when it has been tested and run continuously.

Requiring some work, it is offered as a "running restoration", with our standard warranty as per all tested locomotives.
