5 inch gauge "Marie E" - stock code 5114

I sold one of these back in March this ones just arrived in similar condition. Typical Don Young design, they steam well and are easy to drive the short tender makes it little more of a stretch than a tank engine.

Silver soldered boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by axle pump and injector with a hand pump in the tender. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in cab, twin hydrostatic lubricators.

The work of a man who built many other stationary engines, traction engines and locomotives this one has been unused for some years but needs little more than a good clean to be ready for action.
