3 1/2 inch gauge GNR Atlantic - stock code 7286

A 3 12 inch gauge Great Northern Atlantic to LBSC's popular "Maisie" design. This one is an older engine, although still runs well, with the free-steaming tendency that seems inherent in this design - I can't remember having one that didn't steam well.

Mechanically everything bar the steam brake works - it's more of an ornament than primary safety feature on an engine of this size, my experience of LBSC's steam brake valve design is it's great if you have asbestos fingers.
Livery is pretty eye-popping, a unique take on Darlington green.
