Second hand Back to Locomotives

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 and words below are from last year, the engine is in exactly the same condition now - immaculate, unsteamed.

An exceptionally well-built "Caroline" 0-4-0T, Polly Engineering's take on an Orenstein & Koppel well tank. New and unsteamed, the engine has been painted to a professional standard and nicely detailed throughout with prototypical headlamp, riveted tank and cabs, whistle and replica builder's plates. Runs well on air, it awaits its first fire.

Silver soldered, CE-marked boiler, 90psi working pressure. Feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Hackworth gear, pole reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.

One of the nicest finished Pollys we've seen, of any of their range.
