3 1/2 inch gauge Bombay, Baroda & Central India Railway Pacific - stock code 10027

A large quantity of parts for, we believe, a Bombay, Baroda & Centra India Railway 4-6-2 locomotive - what the railway termed "broad gauge", they also ran metre gauge.

It's come to us from a prolific builder who had a general interest in overseas railways, and a specific one in slightly oddball, rarely modelled prototypes (he was the man responsible for the Dubs tank we currently have in).

One of the last models left on his bench, the engine has suffered from poor storage in recent years and will require some resourcefulnes to complete in the absence of drawings.
