Product description

Bertie is a Roundhouse Engineering basic series freestyle 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive. 

Saddle tanks were probably the most common type of small locomotive found on British narrow gauge railways and Bertie is typical of the style. 

Bertie would be a good first locomotive for anyone thinking of starting out with live steam and you can personalise it to your own requirements with the additional parts and accessories available.

This locomotive is in green and has been fitted with a brass chimney cap, and cylinder covers at the factory

Bertie uses a gas fired boiler and slip-eccentric valve gear so once you have steam up you simply open the regulator and give him a gentle push in the direction you want him to go.
