2 1/2 inch gauge "Dyak" 2-6-0 - stock code 8264

A well built 2 1/2 inch gauge Mogul to LBSC's venerable "Dyak" design, serialised in "Model Engineer" 1934-35.

The standard of machining is good throughout, platework neatly formed. The engine is nicely detailed and well thought out - I like the detachable pump handle which has a threaded socket on the tender for storage.

Unpainted, although with evidence of having been steamed in the past, the engine has minor surface corrosion on the bare steel parts - it comes off easily with Scotchbrite.
