1 1/2 inch scale Allchin traction engine - stock code 6933

A barn find Allchin, recently arrived from the grandson of its builder. Built around forty years ago, it was steamed occasionally when first built, since then it's had the occasional run on air judging from the fitting in the boiler. Unused in many years, it's suffered somewhat in storage and now needs some restoration - to start with mainly a good clean and getting the brightwork back with some Scotchbrite. Turns over freely, lubricator lid is missing, running board/toolbox detached and governor broken off.
