5″ gauge SWEET PEA locomotive.

Built to the standard Buckler design apart from being an 0-4-2 wheel configuration. This model will be sold in full working order with current boiler certification but will benefit from some revision on the state of the pipework and also on the paint which is tired and needs refreshing.

Built with a copper boiler and currently having past boiler history, the model has mechanical cylinder lubrication  an axle pump ,hand pump and injector for the water feed.

These Sweet Pea models are extremely popular and as it is a freelance design come in many shapes and formats. Reasonably powerful they are certainly suited to passenger haulage and can be comfortably driven on ground level tracks as well as raised level with out killing the drivers back. They certainly do what is listed on the package although some drivers find the Marine type firebox of the boiler a little more difficult to cope with, as there is a smaller amount of fire and limited space for ash. With careful monitoring of the fire and ash pan this is easy to overcome.

A very suitable starter engine for those looking to have a model steam loco.                                                     £2650.00IMG_1850 IMG_1851  IMG_1853 IMG_1852IMG_1855 IMG_1857 IMG_1858
