5 inch gauge Polly V 2-6-0T - stock code 8294

One of the larger locomotives in the Polly range range, a Polly V, assembled from a kit by an experienced model engineer - he's currently on with a 7 1/4 inch gauge Heisler, doubled up from the excellent design by Kozo Hiraoka.

In good condition throughout, the engine appears to have had little use - the builder, I suspect, spending more time in his well equipped workshop than out on the track.
