(Light Inspection Car)

Model: Single Seated Car No 1

5′ 3″ Irish Gauge 

(Now sold)

This railway velocipede has the 1898 patent design, with a handbrake. I bought it at an Irish auction, over the phone, and received it dismantled.

It’s Irish Gauge, 5′ 3″ so I can’t use it on English rails, which are 4′ 8 1/2″. I’ll update this page with detailed photos when I’ve reassembled it.
