32mm gauge WHR "Karen" - stock code 5417

A well-advanced 32mm gauge Peckett 0-4-2T, based on "Karen" at the Welsh Highland Railway. Comprising a largely complete rolling chassis, the gunmetal cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser in the cab, working drain cocks. Boiler is in kit form, with formed and flanged plates.

There is more information about the prototype engine on the WHR website here. I was up there whilst on holiday last week - the railway is well worth a visit, it gets better every time I visit, the museum in particular is excellent.
