3 1/2 inch gauge "Virginia" 4-4-0 - stock code 9063

A 3 1/2 inch gauge American 4-4-0 to LBSC's "Virginia" design, it's come to us with a large collection of locomotives from the builder.

It appears to have spent many years under a bench in the workshop. Rolls freely, immensely grubby and - unless our track is getting narrower - fractionally out of gauge on the driving wheels.
