7 1/4 inch gauge "Holmside" 0-6-0T with driving truck - stock code 7861

A 7 1/4 inch gauge Coal Board tank engine, built to Martin Evans' popular "Holmside" design, serialised in "Model Engineer" back in 1977. A large, powerful engine - it makes an ideal entry level club hauler in this gauge for those favouring a standard gauge prototype.

This one has come from a long-time customer of ours - normally a narrow gauge man. Complete with a driving truck fitted with electric feed pump.
