5 inch gauge Railmotor - stock code 1720

An 0-4-0 tank locomotive to the Don Young "Rail Motor" design.

Silver-soldered superheated copper boiler fed by axle pump and injector with auxiliary hand pump in side tank. Working presure 90 psi. Outside cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walshaerts valve gear. Sight feed cylinder lubricator.

Although in running order, this engine is offered as a project needing work. The grate is missing, motion work shows some wear and a repaint would do much for its overall appearance.

Overall length 24 inches
