3 1/2 inch gauge LMS "Jinty" 0-6-0T - stock code 10172

One of those stories of rather a nicely made engine that's fallen on hard times at the hands of a "restorer".

A 3 1/2 inch gauge LMS "Jinty" 0-6-0T, originally rather a well made engine turned out in lined black livery. In recent times it's had what appears to be a cosmetic "restoration" which included painting the backhead and fittings silver (apparently with a tar brush).

The copper boiler appeared dry and free of distortion on hydraulic test, although the regulator and blower valve both leak copiously - we would warranty as sound once the leaky valves have been attended to.

Wheels currently make a part revolution before locking up.

A handsome design, it would be a worthwhile project to put back into running order.
