2 1/2 inch gauge Pacific for restoration - stock code 3844

An ancient coal-fired 2 1/2 inch gauge Pacific, built by the last owner's father sometime shortly after the war. Missing smokebox door and pressure gauge. Wheels and motionwork turn freely, it appears to have already survived one restoration attempt judging from the bare metal on the frames - it really wants stripping and the job doing properly.

Complete with a couple of tins of bits and pieces, including the pressure gauge, various brass fittings and a quantity of fasteners (but no smokebox door).
