3 1/2 inch gauge Stanier 2-6-4T - stock code 6979

A 3 1/2 inch gauge Stanier 2-6-4T to Martin Evans' "Jubilee" design. Built to a fairly pedestrian standard and apparently painted with a tar brush, it requires work including repair to a leaking superheater element, attention to a tight spot in the motion and seized regulator.

Fitted with a commercially made boiler by Cheddar, which looks like it's only been steamed a handful of times.
