A new MSS locomotive and tank wagon

A very popular starting point for Live Steam. With their low cost comes a number of problems which can be discussed here

A new MSS locomotive and tank wagon

Well, OK, actually a (Ma)modification of the standard loco, but apparently with a pressure gauge. Can't tell whether that's a functioning lubricator, and not sure how durable the paint on the boiler and cylinders might prove.

And perhaps a working discharge tap on the tanker?

(More information on the Dream Steam site than MSS's own.)

I notice that dream steam offers an "intermediate ugrade kit" seperately that includes a pressure gauge, displacement lubricator, steam regulator, and other goodies for about £70. The green loco in the picture has a pressure gauge evident through the spectacle so I would hazard a guess that it's being sold with the upgrades including lubricator.

It looks like a nice little engine.
