5 inch gauge "Royal Scot" - stock code 6255

A finely made three cylinder rebuilt Royal Scot, bought as a 75th birthday present for the previous owner, a retired shedmaster, by his wife. Never run in his ownership, it's sat on a piece of display track in his hall, much admired by visitors. At 90, he's now decided that it's time for somebody else to enjoy it.

Silver soldered boiler, 100psi working pressure, feed by twin injectors. Four-element radiant superheater. Cast iron cylinders with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, screw reverser in cab, mechanical lubricator. Steam operated drain cocks.
