Probably the best-finished Polly
Ive seen to date, an immaculate Polly III completed in 2008 and used
infrequently since it was built to, and maintained in, a show
condition with highly polished motionwork, immaculately executed paintwork in
LNER Garter Blue (the builder has a fine reputation for his paintwork, you can
judge the results for yourself both in the pictures below and those of his
Britannia here) and brightwork maintained in a style that would gladden a Brasso
Silver-soldered copper boiler,
90psi working pressure, feed by injector, axle and hand pumps. Cast iron
cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephensons gear, pole reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator.
There is a matching braked bogie
driving truck with water tank the injector is set up to feed from this
with interchangeable bodies, one for ground level running, the other for raised
tracks which includes a pair of quickly-detachable footboards.
A very fine example of a popular engine you would look a long time for a better one (and I swear youd never find a shinier one).
