5 inch gauge "Metre Maid" 0-6-0ST - stock code 8267

A 5 inch gauge "Metre Maid", the 0-6-0 version of "Sweet Pea".

The builder was obviously something of a polishing fanatic, with bulled-up brass everywhere including the unpainted saddle tank.

Largely complete, it runs after a fashion on air, however needs some attention to valve setting and timing.

Boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test with certificate issued for same, warrantied good. The saddle tank needs soldering up on the front seams.
