3 1/2 inch gauge GNR Atlantic - stock code 3118

A nicely made 3 1/2 inch gauge Atlantic to LBSC's "Maise" design, about 95% complete and with virtually everything required to finish.

The silver soldered copper boiler is complete with initial twice working pressure hydraulic test certificate and fitted with superheaters. Workmanship throughout is good with some nice detailing, right down to the provision of a nicely-made cranked spanner to tighten the blastpipe nozzle in the smokebox.

There is a folder full of builder's notes, a set of well-thumbed drawings and three cans of wholly inappropriate coloured paint (seen here on the cab).
