3 1/2 inch gauge LNER A4 Pacific - stock code 9690

A well-advanced 3 1/2 inch gauge LNER A4 Pacific "Golden Fleece", including largely complete three cylinder chassis with much of the motionwork and Grelsey-Holcroft conjugated valve gear, twin axle pumps and brake rigging with steam brake cylinder; boiler and eight wheel tender chassis with some platework.

Something of a rarity in this gauge - the last one we sold, again part-built, was in 2004.
