5 inch gauge Maxitrak "Dixie" 0-4-0ST - stock code 6388

A Maxitrak "Dixie" requiring an overhaul and repaint - it's recently come in from a garden railway where it did many years service in the company of a Maxitrak "Swallow". We supplied a Ride on Railways "Hercules" to the railway last year, which has largely taken over from live steam.

Cosmetically a bit of a disaster, mechanically it pushes along freely. Pressure gauge syphon is broken and gauge itself missing.

A worthwhile restoration project - Dixies are simple to pull apart, there's not a great deal to paint and they steam well. This one could be turned into a smart looking engine without a great deal of outlay.

Hydraulic test @120psi for 80psi working pressure, expires 2-Nov-2018
