2 1/2 inch scale part-built "Fayette" - stock code 2966

One of LBSC's designs from the 1930s, "Fayette" was a large, American-flavour Pacific with bogie tender - they go well, I've had a couple, pictures in the archive.

This engine has had a succession of builders pushing it forwards a bit at a time - some quite good, others distinctly average (especially the bloke who did the coupling rods...). However, there is a good bit done, with loads of sundry bits in boxes that come with. There are set of grubby though readable "modern type" drawings, as well as some proper Dead Sea Scrolls type blueprints.
