5 inch gauge Simplex - stock code 2562

An ancient specimen of Martin Evans' classic beginner's design for a powerful tank engine. This one looks like it was finished shortly before they finished loading the Ark, it's never been steamed but appears to have sat on a very dusty bookcase for about a hundred years. Paintwork is pretty grotty, left hand cylinder cladding is missing, one of the tank filler hinges is detached and in the bunker. Other than that it appears complete and pushes along freely.

Length 36 inches
Weight approx 120 pounds
