3 1/2 inch gauge "Petrolea" 2-4-0 with commercial boiler - stock code 10159

A well-advanced Great Eastern 2-4-0 to LBSC's handsome "Petrolea" design of 1944, comprising rolling chassis with motionwork and valve gear; smokebox assembly with door and chimney; cab, running boards and splashers; commercially built CE-marked copper boiler and a largely complete tender.

Boiler is very slightly too wide for the frames at the firebox, which will need a light skim taking off them to accommodate.

Complete with spiral-bound copies of the original construction articles.
