5 inch gauge Fowler 2F - stock code 3853

An very finely made 5 inch gauge Fowler dock tank, built to an excellent standard throughout. Detailing is superb, remote oilers for the axleboxes, the rear cab slides out from the bunker for access to drive, scale backhead with some of the neatest plumbing I've seen, what look to be hand-made boiler and steam chest pressure gauges, mechanical lubricator with sight feeder in cab and a beautifully made perspex dome in the rear of the nearside side tank to show the pump return when the bypass is open.

The engine shows evidence of having been steamed, but I suspect it was only once to try it - condition of the wheels and motion work shows little evidence of use.
