5 inch gauge Polly "Caroline" 0-4-0T - stock code 7536

We sold this one back in September 2017, it's recently come back in part exchange. Pictures opposite were taken today.

An exceptionally well-built "Caroline" 0-4-0T, Polly Engineering's take on an Orenstein & Koppel well tank. Only fired once, for its steam test, the engine is in as-new condition throughout.

Well-detailed with prototypical headlamp, riveted tank and cabs, dummy oil and tea cans in the cab, whistle and replica builder's plates. Many of the parts including valve chest covers, valve rods, reverser etc have been bright plated.

Paintwork is in good condition, with minor blemishes to boiler cladding on top of firebox and behind smokebox which you can just about see in the pictures.
