2 1/2 inch scale "Pride of Penrhyn" steam wagon - stock code 8935

A 2 1/2 inch scale "Pride of Penrhyn" steam wagon, assembled from a Winson kit.

It turns over freely and runs somewhat asthmatically on air - Winson were fans of O-rings on the pistons which we suspect are overdue for changing.

Boiler has original manufacturer's documentation, it's had a hydraulic test in recent days with certification issued for same.

On rubber tyres all round, one front tyre is loose and needs re-glueing to the rim.

Complete with assembly instructions & drawings.
