Maxitrak Ruston shunter - stock code 4090

An ancient Maxitrak Ruston shunter, made in the days when they had an all-steel fabricated superstructure. It's been languishing at the back of a shed in company with a Hunslet, it last ran a good while ago. Very grubby, but fundamentally looks a reasonable project – the wheels, coupling rods and gears, although filthy, have been well lathered up with oil and remain in decent condition beneath the grime.
