5 inch gauge Simplex 0-6-0T - stock code 5479

We sold this one back in 2009, along with the Polly II that Geoff had done a nut and bolt rebuild on. They've both just come back, part exchanged against a new "Stafford".

Silver soldered copper boiler, 90psi working pressure, feed by axle pump and injector with hand pump in tank. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, screw reverser in cab. The engine has been particularly well made, fit and finish of the motionwork is very good, there are nice details like the side tank level gauge in the cab and remote axle box oilers.

Hydraulic test 7-1-12 @135psi for 90psi working, valid until 6-1-2016
