Title: 5 inch gauge gwr 14xx.

Description: A model works kit recently purchased as a fully working engine, however i think it still needs some work to become a fully sorted model. It has recently had new piston rings fitted and the crosshead pump refurbished.

The engine does run however it does not steam very well, on the move it struggles to build pressure at the rate it uses it. It sometimes needs a push to get it running but i was told this is because the new rings are tight and need running in.

Its fitted with a number 4 injector, which struggles to pick up. Its got current hydraulic certificate, expires march 2016.

I think it needs someone with more knowledge or experience than me to get it into a reliable runner.

I am selling it as it is to help fund a 5 inch engine that is ready to run. I would accept part exchange with cash either way.
