well-advanced 3 ½ inch gauge Britannia to LBSC’s design, comprising a
complete rolling chassis with water pump, lubricator, steam brake cylinder, all
motionwork and valve gear, draincocks, smokebox assembly and cab – all painted
to a high standard – and a completed, painted tender.
work is to a good standard, there are nicely done detail touches like tiny
castellated nuts on the valve gear.
silver-soldered copper boiler had just passed its initial club twice pressure
hydraulic test and comes with certificate for same – quality is excellent,
it’s a beautifully made thing.
I had a
good Britannia to this design in a year or two ago, there
are some pictures in the archive here – this one has all the potential to
end up a similar quality engine.
