A nicely-made GWR 4-6-0 to Martin Evans' "Torquay Manor" design, the engine is in good mechanical order and runs particularly well. The builder went on to larger things after the Manor and has a string of fine 7 1/4 inch gauge locomotives to his credit.

Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with screw reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator, drain cocks rod-operated from cab.
