5 inch gauge Polly I - stock code 6732

We sold this one in summer of last year along with a fine 3 inch scale Burrell to a man whose work has now taken him overseas. Pictures and words below are from July of last year - the engine looks pretty much the same now.

Nicest Polly I we've seen in a long time, a beautifully put together engine that is in fine mechanical order - paintwork and lining was professionally done to a high standard.

Silver soldered copper boiler, feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear, screw reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.
