5 inch gauge Polly 'Molly Ann' - stock code 10692

A new "Molly Anne" 0-6-0 by Polly Engineering, the 0-6-0 variant of their attractive "Trojan" design.

It's come to us from an experienced model engineer - we had his GWR 0-6-0PT "Pansy" last year - who, with advancing years, has been defeated by the size and weight of a 5 inch gauge engine.

It's at an advanced stage of assembly, air-running, with parts to complete.

There is further information and a complete specification of the design on Polly's website here.
