5 inch gauge L&Y "Pug" 0-4-0ST - stock code 7270

A 5 inch gauge Lancashire & Yorkshire "Pug" 0-4-0ST - unusually this one is scratch built, the majority we see have been built from the less than fabulous Winson kits which were marketed some years ago. An older engine, it's been in recent regular use, the owner now having moved up in size to a Simplex (it being difficult to go down in size from a Pug).

Silver soldered copper boiler, two-element flue tube superheaters, 80psi working pressure, feed by axle pump with auxiliary hand pump. Twin safety valves. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator. Cylinder drain cocks rod operated from footplate.

Not an engine of prodigious power, it's more something for pottering around the track with a friend than forming the mainstay of your club's public hauling. Runs adequately forwards, unusually a little better in reverse.

Complete with a purpose built storage crate and set of drawings.
