5 inch gauge BR Standard Class 9F 2-10-0 - stock code 8138

At the rate "barn find" engines seem to be coming in these days, you'd think there can't be that many barns left unexplored.

A 5 inch gauge BR 9F 2-10-0 - decently built in the first place and well-detailed. Whilst we regularly get kit-build engines come in which have been somewhat neglected, not sure how a scratch-built engine of this size - which at some time has taken somebody several thousand hours to build - gets into this sort of state.

Largely complete, the engine is missing a variety of small parts including smokebox door locking bar, safety valves, lubricator lid and various fasteners, including those for the cab roof and smoke deflectors.
