7 1/4 inch gauge 2-4-4 SR&RL Forney - stock code 8412

A 7 1/4 inch gauge Forney 2-4-4, a commercially produced engine supplied new by Maxitrak, still listed in their current range.

The engine appears to have had little use, it's in super condition throughout. We've had it in steam recently - it runs well, notching up accurately in both directions, the TIG-welded copper boiler is free-steaming.

Complete with bolted steel transport/storage stand, fitted with castors.
