5 inch gauge LNER B1 - stock code 5334

A 5 inch gauge LNER B1 to Martin Evans' "Springbok" design, well-made and little used since completion last year.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 90psi working pressure, feed by twin injectors. Cast iron cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear with screw reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.

We had this one in steam last week, there's a short clip of it here.
