5 inch gauge Maxitrak "Dixie" 0-4-0ST - stock code 8335

An older 5 inch gauge Maxitrak "Dixie", their take on a Kerr, Stuart "Wren". A popular design, we've had lots of these over the years - their diminutive size and light weight makes them easy to handle, on the track it's a free-steaming, easy to drive engine.

This one requires minor work, including replacement of water gauge fittings and fettling of the cab roof which has taken on a distinctly "well used, industrial railway" look. Boiler had had a hydraulic test and is sound, the engine runs on air.

Complete with club boiler history and manufacturer's assembly/operating manual.
