5 inch gauge LBSCR E5 radial tank - stock code 1581

A very well constructed model of an LBSCR 0-6-2 E5 radial tank. First introduced in the early twentieth century, the E5s were amalgamated into the Southern Region and finally ended up in British Railways livery at the end of their lives.

This engine is in excellent order with well-executed paintwork and lining. Superheated copper boiler fed by axle pump and injector, with auxiliary hand pump built-in to the bunker tank.
