The engine was completed fifteen years ago, the builder already having produced a 1 inch scale "Minnie", followed by a 3 1/2 inch gauge LMS Jinty before tackling the Allchin.
Unsteamed from new, the engine is complete barring a pressure gauge. Motionwork turns over freely, the motion runs on air with various leaks from fittings and valve chest joint.
