5 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T - stock code 10017

A 5 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T - unusually it's been built with a steel boiler which proved dry and free of distortion on hydraulic test at twice working pressure, however we have no previous history for it.

Chassis rolls freely, fitted with dummy sanders although no brake gear other than a handle and stand in the cab.

The side tanks are dummies, the axle pump currently has no water feed - it was possibly intended to be fed from a driving truck-mounted tank.

There is a steam valve and clack for an injector but no injector fitted.
