3 1/2 inch gauge Stirling Single - stock code 2700

Rather an ancient part-built Stirling Single, using the highly-regarded drawings and castings by Clarkson's of York. Work to date is of a workmanlike, rather than exhibition, standard but with a little work could be turned into rather a nice engine.

Work to date comprises:

Frames, buffer beams and stretchers erected
Bogie, driving and trailing wheels machined
Cylinders and valve chests part machined
Brazed out shell of boiler in copper

There is a set of original Clarkson blueprints, dated 1945.
