2 inch scale "Pride of Penrhyn" steam wagon - stock code 8766

A 2 inch scale kit-built "Pride of Penrhyn" steam wagon.

Unused for several years, it's recently come in along with a freelance 4 1/2 inch overtype wagon. We have its last club certification, the boiler has had a recent hydraulic test in the workshop here with certification issued for same.

It will want some recommissioning work - most glands and fittings leak copiously and the valves blow by - but the wagon is complete, the engine free to turn over.
