Designed as a heavy-duty, robust mechanical lubricator suitable for larger narrow gauge locomotives and traction engines, we fit these as standard on all our range of large 7 1/4 and 10 1/4 inch gauge locomotives (as do several other well known commercial builders in the UK). The pictures below show the lubricator fitted to a 10 1/4 inch gauge Stafford.

Operation is by a pair of high quality roller clutches mounted on a silver steel shaft, there is a priming handle allowing manual operation of the pump to prime the system or give the cylinders an extra dose of oil at the end of a day's running.
