Silver soldered copper boiler, working pressure 90psi, four safety valves. Cast iron piston valve cylinders, Walshaert's valve gear with screw reverser in cab, pair sight-feed lubricators.
The locomotive itself is built to a good standard and runs well on air. Remaining work includes plumbing up the water feeds and bits of platework including cladding the cylinders.
The tender is from another project completely, Martin Evans' "Natal", although of a type appropriate to the locomotive (if not exactly a good match for colour). It too is well made, nicely detailed - it simply needs painting black.
The water bowser came with it and looks the right kind of thing to be towing round behind it.
