7 1/4 inch gauge 0-4-0ST with driving truck - stock code 5685

A 7 1/4 inch gauge Sweet Pea - no, not a Sweet William, this is a Sweet Pea running on 7 1/4 inch gauge track. It's not quite as odd looking as it sounds - it makes quite a practical, small 7 1/4 inch gauge locomotive with a useful sized ride-on tender.

Silver soldered copper boiler, feed by injector, axle and hand pumps. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Hackworth gear with pole reverser in the cab.

Paintwork is pretty dreadful, regulator leaks copiously and the injector plumbing is some of the most wilfully circuitous I've seen.
