5 inch Polly II 0-4-0 - stock code 6844

A 5 inch gauge "Polly II", the popular and thoroughly well-proved 0-4-0 tender engine design from Polly Engineering.

I've lost count how many Pollys we've sold over the years, we've always found them free-steaming, easy to drive engines with the added benefit of being easy to work on. One of the few engines that, when we need parts, we simply get on the phone to Polly rather than head to the machine shop to start cutting metal!

This is an older engine, repainted in recent years and still running well - there's a clip of it in steam outside the works here.
