3 1/2 inch gauge "Hielan Lassie" - stock code 5779

A 3 1/2 inch gauge LNER Pacific to LBSC's "Hielan Lassie" design, his take on Thomson's rebuild of Gresley's A1. An older engine, paintwork is working clothes rather than show finish, however it steams freely and runs well - Steve borrowed it for a couple of months when it came in and reported favourably on its performance at his club track.

Silver soldered copper boiler with combustion chamber, four element superheater, 80psi working pressure, feed by axle pump and injector with auxiliary hand pump in the tender. Three cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaerts gear, screw reverser. Twin ram mechanical lubricator.
