5 inch gauge 0-4-0+0-4-4 Garratt "William Francis" - stock code 7567

We bought this engine from the family of the late builder in 2014 - it sold shortly thereafter, since when it has had a considerable amount of work done to it - both chassis are up to air running stage, platework is largely complete. Work remaining is mainly assembly, fitting out the boiler and painting. Standard of work is top quality throughout, it will make a superb model of this rarely modelled prototype when finished.

Pictures below were taken this morning - the listing in the archive from last time it was here gives full details and more pictures.
