5 inch gauge vertical boiler locomotive - stock code 5219

A particularly well-made vertical boiler locomotive, of freelance design but paying more than a passing resemblance to the products of the DeWinton concern of North Wales.

Silver soldered copper boiler, working pressure 100psi. Feed by injector, mechanical and hand pumps. Twin cast iron cylinders with slide valves, mechanical lubricator, pole reverser.

The combination of its weight and gearing make it a strong performer on the track - size is similar to that other stalwart of North Wales narrow gauge, the Quarry Hunslet, beside which is is pictured below.

Complete with rolling road.
