5 inch gauge GWR 57xx 0-6-0PT - stock code 6377

A finely-built Great Western 57XX Pannier tank, built by a skilled engineer with nearly thirty locomotives to his credit - he also built the 45XX and 14XX currently in stock, as well as a very good Claud Hamilton we sold some years ago.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by injector, axle pump and hand pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in the cab. Sight feed lubricator.

Runs beautifully on air (there's a clip here), the original paintwork remains in fine condition.

Length 33 inches
