This beautiful old engine is about to undergo restoration It is one of a limited number of larger Silsby engines which still exist and of fewer still that still exhibit much of her original paint and decoration. Hopefully the restoration will preserve this. Note should be taken of the spoked steel wheels which were characteristic of many old Silsby engines. Unlike some old wheels these never had a rubber coating of any kind.
