5 inch gauge Rail Motor - stock code 8775

An older 5 inch gauge "Rail Motor", quite decently made and with a sound boiler, recently hydraulic tested at twice working pressure.

The locomotive runs on air but hasn't been steamed in a good while - it will need all the usual recommissioning jobs doing, from repacking the water gauge and checking the safety valve to servicing the boiler feed pumps.
