7 1/4 inch gauge "Metre Maid" 0-6-0ST - stock code 9385

A 7 1/4 inch gauge 0-6-0ST, with chassis based on a widened "Metre Maid" design and locomotive boiler.

An older engine and, arguably, not a thing of beauty (although removal of the horrible stick on vinyl lining and a repaint would improve things considerably).

It rolls along freely, boiler has a seized blowdown valve and springs were either the wrong ones in the first place or completely shot - they need replacing.
