5 inch gauge colonial-style "Rail Motor" 2-4-0 - stock code 6499

An interesting "Colonial" style take on Don Young's excellent 5 inch gauge "Rail Motor" design. Paintwork is tired, but the engine goes well - the added blobs annd gadgets all go to give it rather more of a presence than the standard Rail Motor, I think it looks well.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure. Feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.

Hydraulic test @160psi for 80psi working pressure, expires 22-Dec-2018
Steam test expires 9-Mar-2016
