3 1/2 inch gauge "Britannia" - stock code 3970

A 3 ½ inch gauge Britannia to LBSC's design, with a large amount of work done. The locomotive chassis is complete along with the tender. Boiler has suffered from an insufficiency of heat on assembly, so whilst structurally sound (we've tested at twice working pressure and it didn't fly apart) there are a multiplicity of stays leaking on the outside of the firebox and the wet header joint weeps a little. Could probably be salvaged, but it really wants a good clean up before any attempt is made to reheat.
