3 1/2 inch gauge Liverpool & Manchester "Lion" 2-4-0 - stock code 9571

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Liverpool & Manchest Railway "Lion" 0-4-2 to LBSC's "Titfield Thunderbolt" design. A small engine in full size, it's positvely diminutive in this gauge!

An older engine, it requires work including repair of the regulator linkage (it currently leaks, stuck open), one leaking superheater element and safety valve bodies require soldering back together.
