3 1/2 inch gauge "Princess Marina" - stock code 3463

A well-made example of LBSC's "Princess Marina", based on Stanier's Mogul designed for the LMS in 1933.

Silver-soldered copper boiler with superheaters, working pressure 80psi, feed by axle pump and injector with auxiliary hand pump in tender. Gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Walschaert's valve gear, screw reverser in cab. Mechanical lubricator behind buffer beam.

This one goes in typical LBSC fashion, a free steaming boiler and good valve events make it easy to drive. The engine comes with a pair of custom-built travelling cases.
