7 1/4 inch gauge LMS "Jinty" with driving truck - stock code 5110

You dont see many of these in 7 inch gauge an LMS Jinty, created by doubling up LBSCs Molly design. Built as an apprentice project at a large engineering works in the North East the supervisor was a canny man and bought the engine when it was finished!

Silver soldered copper boiler, working pressure 80psi both boiler and steam chest pressure gauges are fitted - feed by hand pump, injector. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephensons gear with pole reverser in the cab.

An older engine, the paintwork, although fairly presentable, is getting tired. The (working) sanders are fitted to one side but missing from the other.

We had this one in steam earlier in the week, there's a clip of it running here. Complete with a matching-livery driving truck.
