5 inch narrow gauge 0-4-2T "Idris" - stock code 9198

A freelance 5 inch narrow gauge locomotive, based on a "Sweet Pea" although with locomotive boiler and pannier tank.

It's come to us from a long-time customer - we had his Great Western Prairie back in 2007. Run on his private railway at home, the engine has been unused for some years.

A recent overhaul included the fitting of fountain, blowdown plug and top gauge fitting adaptor which all look suspiciously like brass - these will need replacement with bronze.
