7 1/4 inch gauge 0-4-2ST "Elikapika" - stock code 7951

A large, 7 1/4 inch gauge 0-4-2ST with tender "Elikapika", built by Bob Smith for his legendary Comrie Railroad. We sold this one back in 2016 when the railway was dismantled, along with his C19 and Bo-Bo diesel.

It's recently come back in as part of a large collection of engines, sold to fund a historic 15 inch gauge locomotive which is now under restoration.

Pictures opposite are from 2016 - it's in similar condition now, if somewhat grubbier.
