A 5 inch
gauge quarry Hunslet to Don Youngs design - it's an attractive design,
strangely they come up far more often in 7 1/4 and 3 1/2 inch gauge versions, I
rarely see a 5 inch gauge one.
Silver soldered copper boiler with twin element superheater, 90psi working pressure, feed by injector and axle pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephensons gear with pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.
has had a recent boiler test, it goes although sounds as if permanently running
at a large cutoff I suspect one eccentric sheave needs resetting. Other than
that it's in good order, paintwork is in decent condition although the funerally
drab cab would look ten times better repainted into the pale cream and black
seen on the prototype engines.
