7 1/4 inch gauge Greenly 2-6-0T with driving truck - stock code 6226

An older engine, built to Henry Greenly's Mogul design - more normally seen with a tender (we had a good part-built one in years ago, there are pictures in the archive here). This one was built with side tanks, proportions are typical Greenly giving a robustly constructed, powerful engine.

Original boiler failed in recent years, the replacement is a beautifully made all silver-soldered copper job by the estimable John Ellis, built in 2005. 100psi working pressure, feed by twin injectors. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, pole reverser in the cab. Vacuum fitted, with driver's brake valve, ejector and gauge.

I drove this engine the day we collected it - I was impressed how well it went, crisp exhaust beats and lively on the regulator. It's been through the workshop, Barry has rebushed and/or repinned coupling, connecting rods and eccentric rods. Still runs well, just rather more quietly now.

Complete with a driving/passenger truck with bolt on footboards for driver.
