5 inch gauge "Gert" 0-6-0 + tender - stock code 8475

A 5 inch gauge 0-6-0, based the "Gert" 0-6-0T design but with a tender replacing the standard side tanks.

Built in 1998, the engine has recently come in from a man with a new "General Gordon" on order. In regular use until recently, the engine steams well, although starting to need some rebushing of the motion work.

This one would make a good "rolling restoration", it could be improved whilst in service this season, with a strip and repaint over next winter.
