5 inch gauge J88 0-6-0T - stock code 8246

A 5 inch gauge 0-6-0T locomotive - based loosely on an LNER J88 0-6-0T - which came in recently in part exchange against a Great Western Mogul.

We have some boiler history for this one by way of club certification, the boiler has had a recent hydraulic test in the workshop here with certificate issued for same.

The chassis rolls along freely, there has been some minor dismantling of fittings and pipework - the parts removed are included, as shown in the pictures opposite.

A good looking, well-proportioned locomotive, it makes a slightly smaller and lighter alternative to the ubiquitous "Simplex".
