7 1/4 inch gauge Roanoke shunter - stock code 2368

And back again for the third time... Last sold this one in 2011 to an unfortunate chap who broke both his wrists shortly afterwards - he's had to have a serious clear out of his larger-sized engines, so this arrived back here earlier in the week, along with a 5 inch gauge Britannia and 9F.

Pictures are from 2006, I'm pretty sure it hasn't been run by either of the last two owners.

2011: Ive had this one before, sold back in 2006. Currently listing new at just under 9000, this one has been uprated with vacuum brakes, electrically-operated pumps for vacuum and air in the tender, headlight and a set of air horns. Photographs are from 2006, it looks pretty much the same now except for somebody having removed the nameplates - not sure it's actually been used in the meantime.

A large, commercial specification petrol hydraulic shunter. Built on very substantial lines, with EN8 wheels and axles, all roller bearing axleboxes and 3mm steel superstructure. Electric start four stroke engine with Eaton hydrostatic transmission. This locomotive has also been fitted with vacuum braking gear, with electric vacuum and air pumps in the tender with their own battery independent of the locomotive battery, a powerful pair of air horns and headlight.
