7 1/4 inch gauge Decauville 0-4-0 - stock code 4307

I sold this one last year, it's come back in part exchange for a 5 inch gauge engine - pictures are from last year, it's pretty much the same now.

An 80% complete 7 1/4 inch narrow gauge 0-4-0T built along the lines of a Decauville, based on modified Romulus running gear. It looks to have been sitting about for many years at its current state of progress, however the chassis is well-made and pushes along freely, the steel boiler has expanded tubes and has been recently tested at 200psi for 100psi working pressure and a new certificate issued by a commercial inspector. Cylinders are in cast iron with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear.
