3 1/2 inch gauge GNR Atlantic - stock code 8338

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Great Northern Atlantic to LBSC's "Maisie" design, an older engine which appears to have seen little use from new.

Boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test with certification issued for same.

Machining is crisply done throughout, fit and finish of the motionwork good.

Platework is neatly formed, the engine is well-painted in GNR lined green livery.

The chassis runs on air in forwards gear, not in reverse - it either needs the eccentrics resetting (or a circular track...)
