1 inch scale "Minnie" traction engine - stock code 6855

A venerable "Minnie", completed to Len Mason's popular design in 1979 - the builder's daughter remembers it being steamed in years gone by, although it looks like it hasn't run in twenty years! Missing a filling plug from the boiler (beneath the cylinder block on the nearside) and the pressure gauge syphon needs soldering back together. Otherwise it looks to be nicely made, still turns over freely.
