7 1/4 inch gauge NY&HRR 4-4-0 - stock code 5690

A finely made 7 1/4 inch gauge NY&HRR 4-4-0. Unused for many years, the previous owner believes it was sold originally through "Steam Age", from the quality of build that's possibly true, it runs exceptionally well.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 90psi working pressure, feed by injector, twin crosshead pumps and auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Mechanical lubricator mounted in cab. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser. Steam brakes.

We had this one running in the workshop before Christmas - very quiet, it runs well.

Locomotive 51 inches
Tender 28 inches
