Now in preservation, Jack is to be found in restored condition at the Leeds Industrial Museum, Armley Mills in Yorkshire.

 
     
 

 
     
 

THE 5" GAUGE "JACK" IS AN UNUSUAL AND POWERFUL LOCOMOTIVE AND IS AVAILABLE AS A FULLY MACHINED KIT, PAINTED KIT AND READY TO RUN. 7" GAUGE AVAILABLE BY SPECIAL ORDER!

 
     
 

PRINCIPAL FEATURES OF JACK include outside frames, Walschaerts valve gear & mechanical lubricator. The Well tank is located between the frames at the front of the engine and feeds the hand pump located in the cab. The axle pump is fed from a suitable tender or trolley mounted tank.
