7 1/4 inch gauge "Holmside" 0-6-0T with driving truck - stock code 7698

A 7 1/4 inch gauge 0-6-0ST to Martin Evans' "Holmside" design, complete with a driving trolley. An older engine, it came from the builder's family along with his Garratt traction engine which we sold late last year (there are pictures of it in the archive here)

Paintwork needs some retouching and the driving truck is not the finest looking one we've ever seen(!), however the engine runs well and could be used as is, with cosmetic improvement done as part of a rolling restoration project.

The design produces a large, powerful engine ideally suited to those wanting a standard gauge prototype for club running.
