3 1/2 inch gauge part-built "Britannia" - stock code 2849

A well made "Britannia" chassis to the LBSC design. Pretty much a complete chassis nearly ready to run on air, with lubricator and water pump fitted. It needs some minor plumbing and the reverser fitting. Turns over easily, motion work is nicely fitted and the wheels accurately quartered. Fairly grubby, but most of what you see is congealed oil, the metal beneath is well preserved and comes up bright.

There is a bit of a curate's egg of a boiler, quite a lot of good bits but no firebox side stays yet and some strange panel beating down one side. Tank for a tender, together with a few bit and pieces to go with it.

Drawings, castings and other bits all still available from both Reeves and Blackgates.
