Well-built originally, it has been used regularly for club running, competing in IMLEC several times. Although the wet header leaks profusely - it needs stripping out and a new gasket making - the boiler is sound, the engine runs well on air.
Complete with club boiler history dating back to 2007, since when it has been tested and run continuously.
Requiring some work, it is offered as a "running restoration", with our standard warranty as per all tested locomotives.
