5 inch gauge Super Simplex (blue) - stock code 5391

I sold this one last year, it's recently come back as a part exchange - hasn't had anything done to it in the meantime, still looks exactly the same as the pictures below, which were taken last time it was here.

Built as one of a pair by an experienced model engineer - the man responsible for the Tinkerbell 0-6-2T we sold last year that went particularly well - and based on Martin Evans' popular "Simplex" design, this engine is around 90% complete. The silver soldered copper boiler has been well put together and was hydraulic tested by the builder's club before installation.

Work remaining includes cylinder cladding, backhead fittings and pipework.

Hydraulic test 25-5-2010 @200psi for 100psi working pressure, expires 24-4-2014
