5 inch gauge "Butch" - stock code 4417

A "Butch" 0-6-0T, one of the nicest-looking 0-6-0 tank engines around, to my eyes. With 90psi working pressure, plenty of weight and a short coupled wheelbase, these are capable of doing good service both at the club and on more restricted garden railways.

Silver soldered copper boiler with superheaters, 90psi working pressure, feed by double-acting axle pump, hand pump and two injectors. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear with pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator mounted between the frames.

An older engine, it has been re-boilered in recent times.
