5 inch gauge "Twin Sisters" - stock code 3938

An older engine built to the "Twin Sister" design, based on the Fowler 2F tank engines that ran about on the LMS. Well-made in the first place, it now needs mainly cosmetic tidying up, the motionwork could use some rebushing. The boiler has had a hydraulic test, our inspector has issued a new certificate for same.

Silver soldered copper boiler by Swindon Boilers, working pressure 90psi. Feed by axle pump, with hand pump in side tank. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear with pole reverser in cab.

Complete with storage crate.
