5 inch gauge Polly III - stock code 5921

A Polly III, in working order but in need of some tidying up - paintwork is getting pretty tatty, the draincock linkage needs attention. On the plus side it goes well, boiler is sound and the pumps work - the six-coupled Pollys make useful club engines, good reserves of power and plenty of adhesive weight.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 90psi working pressure. Feed by injector, axle and hand pumps. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in cab, mechanical lubricator.
