2 1/2 inch gauge LNER Pacific - stock code 7824

A well made 2 1/2 inch gauge LNER Pacific, possibly commercially built. Work to date comprises complete chassis, along with a spirit-fired water tube boiler with safety valve, clack, pressure gauge syphon and water gauge fittings.

Tender chassis is largely complete, there is a tender tank and cab from what appears to be another model, possibly dismantled to provide parts for this one. Neither are the quality of the rest of the work, it would be worth building new tank and cab from scratch - previous owner appears to have had the same idea, there are some brass parts cut for the cab.
