3 1/2 inch gauge Black 5 - stock code 7065

A well-built 3 1/2 inch gauge Black 5 to LBSC's "Doris" design, an older engine that remains in good mechanical condition.

Boiler had a twice working pressure test at 160psi for 80psi working when it came in, the engine steams freely and runs well, notching up in either direction.

The water gauge seals require replacement - they've hardened with age.
