5 inch gauge Polly II - stock code 4120

A nicely put together "Polly II", it runs well and is in good mechanical order (I rather like the shade of red as well, possibly because one of the three "Staffords" due out next week has been specified in a similar colour!)

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, 90psi working pressure, feed by axle pump and injector. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.

I can't really think of much more to write about this one - I've had several Pollys come through recently - we've sold two in the last fortnight - they're easy to service, steam freely and run well. An ideal beginner's engine in this gauge.
