5 inch gauge GWR 15XX 0-6-0PT - stock code 8130

A 5 inch gauge GWR 15XX 0-6-0PT to LBSC's "Speedy" design.

This one came in as a part exchange, the previous owner had been running it until recently. Overall quite well made, with some quirky detailing including the forward facing drain cock operating rod, which looks like you could spear something with it whilst running.

Injector is missing although pipework still present - there is a hand pump and axle pump for boiler feed. Runs on air in a fairly desultory way forwards, not at all backwards, so scope for some tuning here...

Boiler is a commercially made job by the inestimable Swindon Boilers - it's just had a hydraulic test with certificate issued for same, warrantied as sound. We also have some recent club history.
