3 1/2 inch gauge "PV Baker" - stock code 9492

A 3 1/2 inch gauge 0-6-0T to LBSC's "P.V.Baker" design. Piston Valves, Baker valve gear - for all his many qualities, he was not a man to let imagination run riot when naming his designs...

An older engine, it wants a fair bit of TLC including attention to leaky fittings and regulator, replacement of missing pipework, fountain with valves and pressure gauge, and provision of a grate.

The engine runs forwards on air, not in reverse.
