3 1/2 inch gauge "Netta" 0-8-0 - stock code 8627

An ancient 3 1/2 inch gauge "Netta", LBSC's North Eastern 0-8-0 design published in "Model Engineer" magazine - famously he described its construction in five different gauges simultaneously. Often wondered if anybody ever built all five.

This one is extremely grubby, although chassis has been well-oiled in storage and remains free to turn over. Missing running boards, along with most of the backhead fittings.

Complete with a pair of well-made carrying boxes.
