5 inch gauge Maxitrak "Pearl" 0-4-2ST - stock code 7809

A complete 5 inch gauge Maxitrak "Pearl" 0-4-2ST, their take on a Kerr Stuart Tattoo.

Dismantled for restoration, much work has already been done by way of cleaning and repainting - it now requires reassembly.

A large locomotive for the gauge, Maxitrak use the same parts for the 7 1/4 inch gauge version - both come in at 36 inches long and a hundredweight and a half dry.

We've seen the engine running in the past and tested the boiler back in 2018. It hasn't been steamed since that time - there's a couple of years left on the hydraulic certificate, we will warranty the boiler as sound.

There are pictures of a good "Pearl" we sold back in 2017 in the archive if you need to remind yourself what it looks like when complete.
