3 1/2 inch gauge GWR Prairie "Firefly" - stock code 3663

A well-engineered 3 1/2 inch gauge GWR small Prairie to Martin Evans' "Firefly" design. The engine is pretty much 90% complete - it needs some minor plumbing work, the rear pony truck fitting and painting.

Fit and finish of the motionwork is good, the engine runs along freely without binding, execution of platework and rivetting is exceptional - flat sheets of brass and neat row of rivets.
