3 1/2 inch gauge 4-6-4T - stock code 9078

A large 3 1/2 inch gauge 4-6-4 tank locomotive, freelance in design although plausible in proportion (which is far from given with some of the freelance designs we see).

An old engine, it's come to us from the son of the late owner, in recent years used only for display.

Chassis is complete and turns over, if slightly stiffly - posibly simply through lack of lubrication and dirt.

Boiler is pretty horrible, with at least as much solder as copper in the firebox.
