5 inch gauge GWR 45xx 2-6-2T - stock code 6376

A beautifully built Great Western small Prairie, the work of a prolific and highly capable builder, a man now in his ninth decade with almost thirty locomotives to his credit - you may remember the fine Claud Hamilton we had in a few years back which he had built.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by crosshead pump and injector with hand pump in the bunker. Cast iron cylinders with piston valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser, sight feed lubricator.

Finely detailed, the engine also runs particularly well - there's a clip of it in the workshop here.

Length 40 inches

gauge 5 inch
