Built in 1991 by Naroguage Ltd, I am selling this locomotive due to relocating overseas.

This well-known large 7 1/4" Gauge engine is well suited to commercial work. Previously known as 'Robert Snooks', this locomotive has been well maintained and cared for in my private ownership, it was last steamed in September '18. It is currently out of ticket but needs a simple new lever ball valve for the whistle for it to pass.

This is a real true workhorse for any passenger carrying miniature railway.

Welded steel boiler with expanded tubes, 100psi working pressure, fed by twin injectors. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's gear, mechanical lubricator. The engine is fitted with vacuum brake equipment, with gauge and driver's brake valve in the cab. There is a slacking pipe plumbed into the offside injector with diverter valve, providing a quick and highly effective means of washing down the footplate.
