7 1/4 inch gauge Stockton & Darlington 0-6-0 ''Wilberforce'' - stock code 9881

A 7 1/4 inch gauge 0-6-0, inspired by "Wilberforce" built in 1833 for the Stockton & Darlington Railway by R & W Hawthorn, to a design by Timothy Hackworth.

The work of an experienced engineer, it is a pretty fair representation of the prototype, whilst making concessions for ease of handling and robustness.

The return flue boiler is welded steel with expanded tubes, it comes with club history along with a recent hydraulic test.

The engine runs on air in both directions. Injector and mechanical pump are piped up to take water from a tank on a driving truck.
