5 Inch Gauge OS Dorte - 2
An unusual engine, usually a little bit of an oddity but as luck would have it the second one on our books. No longer in production, the Dorte is a German Koppel Style 5" tank engine, has a few oddities that we are not used to like the quick release boiler setup, sealed roller bearings on the main axels and sprung loaded reverser but all in all it seems mechanically good and sound, silver soldered boiler and lots of nice brass fittings.
Llooking at the size of it i would rate it to pull 4 persons and it is easily transportable by one person. Designed for ease of transport the loco is easily dissasembled in to three managable parts.
It has an axel pump, hand pump and mechanical lubricator and the capacity to run it on coal or propane gas all parts supplied, lots of spare 'o' rings and parts and as per all OS models a comprehensive set of engineering drawings, Japanese pression engineered model with very little use!
