3 1/2 inch gauge GWR 2-8-0 - stock code 9065

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Great Western 2-8-0, it's come to us from the builder. Run in the past, it's now part dismantled although, we believe, substantially complete.

The boiler had obviously been club tested in the past and carries a Northern Association number on the backhead. We've given it a twice working pressure hydraulic test at 180psi for 90psi working and issued certification for same.
