3 1/2 inch gauge Juliet - stock code 9491

A venerable example of LBSC's "Juliet" 0-4-0 tank locomotive, an old engine that looks like it was last steamed when Noah was in short trousers.

Runs on air, although with some leaking past the valves. Grate and one tank filler lid is missing, the smokebox needs dart and handles making, it's currently crudely secured with a nut and bolt.

On hydraulic test the copper boiler has a fine jet of water from one stay in the firebox which is missing its nut.

Complete with a rolling road.
