5 inch gauge Metre Maid - stock code 4095

"Sweet Pea"'s 0-6-0 cousin, we don't see many "Metre Maids" - I think in the traditional saddle tank form they look a bit odd, whereas this one, done out with side tanks, gives the design a complete different - and to my eyes more attractive - look.

This well put together engine has come direct from the builder. Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, working pressure 80psi, feed by injector, axle pump and hand pump. Slide valve cylinders, Hackworth valve gear with pole reverser in the cab, there are twin mechanical lubricators fitted on the running boards.

The engine comes complete with a four wheel driving truck.
