3 1/2 inch gauge "Hielan Lassie" - stock code 7827

An older model of an LNER Pacific to LBSC's popular "Hielan Lassie" design. The engine has come from a collection of models, formerly the property of a man who worked part-time at "Steam Age" of Cadogan Street, London.

Somewhat grubby and incomplete, missing various small parts and the cab; regulator is seized open, various fittings leak copiously. The engine runs well on air in both directions.

For those who want something ready to run with less time in the workshop, we've got a particularly good running example in at the moment, details and pictures here.
