5 inch gauge GWR 14XX 0-4-2T - stock code 7112

We sold this one a couple of years ago, it's recently come back looking pretty much the same as last time it was here. Pictures opposite and words below are from 2017 - the boiler has had a hydraulic test and new certificate issued in recent weeks.

Paintwork is unfortunate on this kit-built GWR 14XX, because underneath it's actually been put together rather well. All the usually rather crudely finished rods have been bulled up, it runs along very freely and steams well. But red boiler bands...

Silver soldered copper boiler, 90psi working pressure, feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with screw reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.

There's a (very) short clip of it running on the rolling road here. I think our cinematographer was running low on film.
