Its last owner kept it on display in his house, along with several other good engines including the Britannia "Royal Star" which we sold back in the summer.
The boiler had a twice working pressure shell test off the frames in 2016, with club certificate issued for same. It had a 1.5xWP hydraulic test in our workshop on arrival, with new certificate issued.
There is some work to be done reassembling pipework in the smokebox which we assume was left undone at the time of the stripdown and repaint.
The engine turns over freely, but with no go in either direction on compressed air which finds a shortcut past either pistons, valves, or both.
