3 1/2 inch gauge Stanier 2-6-4T - stock code 5722

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Stanier 2-6-4T to Martin Evans' "Jubilee" design. Built to a fairly pedestrian standard, on its last outing it broke an axle pump whilst running (which must have caused some excitement, not to mention derangement of one valve spindle clevis). The regulator bush leaks as well. And the steam brake valve. Buffers are correct pattern oval type, although they revolve, so you can have the choice of wide fat ones or long thin ones. Paintwork is of "dodgy car respray" quality, with light fogging of gloss black over the coupling rods, motion brackets and expansion links...

On the bright side, the silver soldered boiler is in good condition.
