2 1/2 inch gauge LNER Pacific "Owen Tudor" - stock code 7825

We sold this one back in 2018, it's recently come back from late owner's son in similar condition to when we last sold it. Photographs opposite and words below are from 2018.

A finely made 2 1/2 inch gauge LNER Pacific, possibly commercially built as one of a small batch using Bassett Lowke castings. This locomotive has come from a collection of models, the late owner used to work part time for "Steam Age" of Cadogan Street in the 1980s.

There is no boiler beneath the cladding - the original design was available in both spirit and coal-fired versions - however the chassis looks complete and ready to run, with displacement lubricator and axle pump. Smokebox, boiler cladding and cab are neatly made, the eight wheel corridor-type tender is complete, with hand pump installed.
