3 1/2 inch gauge GNR Atlantic - stock code 7826

An older Great Northern Atlantic to LBSC's "Maisie" design, this one came from a man who had worked for "Steam Age" in London in the 1980s, he had all sorts of nice engines and bits thereof.

Boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test and is warranted sound, with new test certificate.

Fit and finish of the machined parts is good, it's siky smooth to turn over. The engine looks like it's halfway through a repaint, the pressure gauge needs a new union sleeve soldering on.
