2 1/2 inch gauge Pacific - stock code 8334

A venerable example of LBSC's American Pacific "Fayette".

Well built in the first place, the engine remains in good condition - chassis turns over freely, the boiler proved sound on a twice working pressure hydraulic test, although needs the firebox hinge mounting studs replacing - the original steel ones have rusted through.
