3 1/2 inch gauge "Princess Marina" - stock code 3971

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Mogul to LBSC's "Princess Marina" design. Another of those well-intentioned rebuild projects, this one had the smokebox plumbing removed some time ago and lost, along with the grate and ashpan. The twin axle pumps have been very neatly blanked off - no idea why - but could easily be re-instated, the eccentric sheaves are still fitted, it would need a pair of rams, rods and straps.

Motion all turns over freely, the boiler has been pumped up to 160psi with one minute bead on a firebox stay to show after twenty minutes - it's in an easily accessible place and could either be knocked down or calked over with Comsol, other than that the boiler is structurally sound.
