5 inch gauge Rail Motor - stock code 6935

A 5 inch gauge "Rail Motor" to the Don Young design, an older engine which came in to us last year. Size belies the performance on these, they go well and make a remarkably capable club performer, whilst at the same time being easy to move about single handed.

Paintwork looks like it was done with Dulux and a big brush, however the engine runs well, boiler has been recently tested.
