3 1/2 inch gauge Britannia - stock code 5332

A 3 1/2 inch gauge "Britannia" to the LBSC design, built by a prolific engineer, the man responsible for several stationary engines we have in at the moment, including Stuarts No.1, No.9 and a steam pump.

This engine was completed many years ago but never steamed, later passing to the builder's brother. Pretty grubby condition, detail work is fairly pedestrian but it runs well on air (once we'd found out there were no balls in the clack valves and blocked them off).
