Here we have a particularly nicely made 3 1/2" gauge Stanier class 4 tank, to the well established Martin Evans 'Jubilee' design. This is another brand new model, and has now only been steamed once, purely so that we could commission' it to make sure that all was well. It comes with it's original professional boiler build cert and shell test certificate from Western Steam to twice working pressure as well as a full 4 year hydraulic certificate and annual steam test.
It runs as well as you'd expect it to, with a lovely and crisp exhaust. Water is fed by both a twin axle pumps and a hand pump in the tank. There is a mechanical lubricator under the front footplate. The top of the bunker is removable to enable easy driving, although there is a really neat little folding section to the back of the cab so you could drive it with everything in place if you wanted to keep it looking right.
All in all, one of the nicest Martin Evans Jubilees we've seen, and certainly one that promises to be a great performer.
Here's a short clip of it running in on test last week.
