5 inch gauge Hunslet 0-4-0ST - stock code 9072

A Maxitrak Hunslet 0-4-0ST, steamed half a dozen times from new, up on blocks at the owner's house - he never got around to putting down the rail he bought with it, nor using the driving truck which we sold recently.

It's spent the last few years in storage, during which time the regulator stuck - and was then broken by somebody attempting to free it off without dismantling - and the valves seized.

It now needs some work to recommision, however the engine remains overall in virtually unused condition. The boiler has had a recent hydraulic test and new certification issued for same.

For those wanting a ready to run engine, we've got a virtually identical model - tested and ready to go - listed on the "locomotives" page.
