5 inch gauge "Simplex" 0-6-0 - stock code 6850

An older "Simplex" 0-6-0T to Martin Evans' popular design - there must have been hundreds of them made over the years. This one came in recently as a part exchange, well used and paintwork getting a bit grotty in places - the blue wheels are truly horrible.

Silver soldered superheated copper boiler, 100psi working pressure, feed by injector and axle pump with auxiliary hand pump in the side tank. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, screw reverser in the cab. Mechanical lubricator.
