5″ GWR 45xx

Here we have a 5″ gauge GWR small prarie tank 45xx, or rather 4575 class.  We’ve sold this one before, and it’s recently come back into stock due to it’s owner moving on to other toys!  Based upon a Winson/Modelworks kit, this one has been extensively re-worked mechanically to turn it into the well proven hauler that it is.  The previous owner had a fetish for pulling lots of wagons, so things have been fettled and tweaked to ensure the loco was satisfyingly capable in that department.

Whilst the paintwork definitely has the patina of a working loco,…. it has it’s fair share of shovel scratches and scuffs, the general appearance is purposeful and workmanlike rather than scruffy.  It certainly doesn’t need a re-paint just yet!  There is an injector, a hand pump in the tank and a crosshead water pump in the usual prototypical GWR location, with footplate mounted bypass valve.  Draincocks are footplate operated, and lubrication on this one is via a large displacement resevoire under the footplate floor and regulateable sight feed glass in the cab.

The boiler is the usual professionally made job, and she is fully certificated and ready to play.
