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

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. It comes complete with a finely made fitted carrying case, manufacturer's boiler documentation and assembly instructions, blower and firing irons. 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.
