7 1/4 inch gauge "Sweet William" 0-4-0ST with driving truck - stock code 7802

A 7 1/4 inch gauge "Sweet William" complete with driving truck. Built in 2004 with a commercial boiler, the engine is in good condition - it steams freely and runs well.

Built closely to standard specification, although the original poppet valve type regulator has been replaced with a stainess steel ball valve - a good idea, it's the same type we use on Staffords, although the pipework could be a little more elegant.

Complete with a set of drawings, past club boiler history and original boiler paperwork from Gloucester Steam & Traction.
