Here we have a little used and fairly huge, 7 1/4" gauge Thomas II Garrett. Based upon the Thomas II basic design and format, although the valve gear has been considerably re-designed so that it notches up correctly, and runs as well in forwards as it does in reverse. It’s a well known issue with the Thomas II valve gear as designed, and so it’s important to know that it has been sorted out on this one. The boiler is professionally built, CE marked and steel with expanded in tubes. Although the loco is about 5 years old, it has seen little use on the private railway where it was resident, due to the railway making much more use of the resident GP40 diesel engines.
