5 inch gauge GWR 15xx 0-6-0PT - stock code 5857

A GWR 15xx 0-6-0PT to LBSC's "Speedy" design - this one has been stored, unused for the last eight years whilst the owner's other interests kept him away from the track.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by twin injectors, axle and hand pumps - injector steam pipework is too small and wants replacing. Gunmetal cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.

This one has the revised valve gear, it runs well and will notch up both forwards and reverse.
