5 inch gauge LMS 0-6-0T - stock code 10300

A 5 inch gauge 0-6-0T to Austen-Walton's "Twin Sisters" design.

It's come to us as part of a large collection where it was on display in the owner's house for many years. Only documentation with the boiler was a shell test from 1991 along with some pictures of the engine when first built.

The chassis rolls freely and make desultory attempts to run on air, with much leakage from pipework and valves.
