5 inch gauge Polly III 0-6-0T - stock code 6563

A 5 inch gauge Polly III, the six-wheeled variant of Polly Engineering's ever popular range. Ideal as a beginner's engine, they're pretty much bomb proof and capable performers for club running.

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

Overall in good order, there's some paint wear around the top of the firebox and backhead.

There's a clip of it running outside the workshop here.

Hydraulic tested at 135psi for 90psi working pressure, 26-May-2015
Steam tested 26-May-2015
