5 inch gauge GWR 57XX 0-6-0PT - stock code 8341

A 5 inch gauge Great Western 57XX pannier tank, built to a good standard and well-finished in semi-gloss livery.

Copper silver-soldered boiler is superheated, with four flue tube elements. Feed by injector, axle and hand pumps.

Built as an open cab variant, with canvas weathersheet rolled up under the cab roof, it's got the look of a "Gentleman's Light Sporting Locomotive" about it, with all backhead controls easily accessible.

Chassis turns over freely, the engine runs well on air in both directions.
