5 inch gauge Maxitrak "Ruby" - stock code 4477

A Maxitrak "Ruby", complete with tender. Never painted from new, if you like polishing brass it's ideal - myself, I'd be tempted to paint it.

Silver soldered marine boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by injector, crosshead and hand pumps. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Hackworth gear, screw reverser in cab.

This one runs particularly well, free-steaming, an ideal beginner's engine in 5 inch gauge.
