7 1/4 inch gauge "Holmside" 0-6-0T with driving truck - stock code 7790

A finely made example of Martin Evans "Holmside", one of a batch produced by award-winning model engineer Ron Martin, the man responsible, amongst other thing, for a legendary pair of 7 1/4 inch gauge 9Fs (you can see pictures of one of them in the archive here).
Complete with a ride on plank wagon driving truck, the engine runs very well - we'd have expected no less. It's been in regular use for club running, paintwork is presentable if getting a little battle-scarred in places, mechanically it's in good order. Boiler has had hydraulic and steam tests recently, full information on the "details" tab above.
