3 1/2 inch gauge Derby 4F - stock code 8701

A 3 1/2 inch gauge LMS 4F, an older model which has been in recent club use.

Club certification with hydraulic test valid until 2021, steam test expires in May 2020. The engine runs well, however there are a couple of tiny pinhole leaks on the foundation ring and throatplate - we suspect they'd take up under steam (and are pretty sure it's been running around like this for this for a while) but need either plugging or some Comsol before next test.
