3 1/2 inch gauge LMS Duchess chassis - stock code 5005

A well-made 3 1/2 inch gauge Duchess to the Clarkson design and using their castings, comprising a well-advanced four-cylinder chassis which is nicely fitted and rolls along freely, a 50% complete tender and a quantity of parts and castings. Slide valve cylinders are in gunmetal, the crankaxle has been made and fitted, along with twin axle pumps. The project was last worked on many years ago, it has been stored since liberally covered in preservative oil which has tried to the brown varnish-like finish you see here. Comes off readily with some petrol (although I'm sure you're supposed to use something safer).
