5 inch Polly II 0-4-0 - stock code 8971

A Polly II 0-4-0 tender engine, an older engine it has a sound boiler, runs on air, paintwork is on the exhausted side of tired.

Currently needs some minor work including attention to a seized blowdown valve and replacement of the fusible plug which has had a copper rivet silver soldered into it (rather frighteningly, not as uncommon as you might think).
