3 1/2 inch gauge "Hielan Lassie" - stock code 8347

A 3 1/2 inch gauge "Hielan Lassie", LBSC's popular 3 cylinder LNER Pacific design.

A stalled restoration project, the tender has been finely repainted (and provided with a plastic coal hopper to protect the paintwork), the locomotive cab as well, although pretty hopelessly lined. The rest of the paintwork is shabby, there is wear to the motionwork which will require some rebushing.

Boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test and is warrantied as sound, the chassis runs on air.
