3 1/2 inch gauge Mikado "I Dunno" - stock code 2678

A venerable old engine, it had rather a reputation at my old club as a "goer" - I suspect eight fairly small driving wheels and Baker valve gear gives it its get up and go. Well made, I've no idea where the design came from (and I suspect the nameplate reflect how often the owner had to confess the same). All sorts of interesting little features, including a "cassette" ashpan and grate arrangement that drops out of the back bringing the trailing wheels with it.

Comes complete with a purpose-built carrying cradle and a pair of very substantial wooden storage crates.
