0-6-0 Tank Locomotive "Ossie"
Selling on behalf of our client we have this brilliant 5-inch gauge model of the 0-6-0 tank locomotive called "Ossie."
The model was built by T. Saxon from Stockport in 1975 and measures 13 & 3/4 inches by 33 inches (35cm x 845cm). The locomotive is sturdily constructed with a brazed superheated copper boiler and comes with various fittings such as water and pressure gauges, safety valves, blower, injector, whistle, clack, blowdown and other valves.

See below for full information about this locomotive.
Thousands of dollars have been spent maintaining this locomotive over the years. The loco was purchased at the top of the range and has been steamed a hand full of times. The loco has been cosmetically restored by a professional model builder who has done a truly excellent job. As you can see from the photos, the model is still in excellent condition after many years.
The model was built to a fine engineering standard, and during the restoration, it was completely dismantled, and a high level of workmanship is evident both internally and externally.
There is a small brass plaque on the model (see photo) showing that it was made by a T. Saxton in Stockton (near Manchester, UK) in 1975. Since the restoration the model has been on display in the current owners office.
