I last sold
this engine in 2004, it came at that time from a friend who was moving up a size
(about eight hundredweight in locomotive and four acres in premises) - there
are pictures and a write up in the archive. Since then it’s been at a
local club, it came back recently in exchange for the Isle of Man Railways
“Caledonia” I sold recently.
soldered boiler fed by injector and crosshead pump. Outside cylinders with slide
valves actuated by Hackworth valve gear, mechanical lubricator. Spring-loaded
looks much the same as it did six years ago, still needs a repaint, doesn’t
appear to have done a great deal more work in the intervening years. Our
inspector has just done hydraulic and steam tests on it, the engine is ready to
go to work again.
