5 inch gauge GWR 14xx 0-4-2T - stock code 5548

A 5 inch gauge GWR 14xx, assembled for the owner by a commercial outfit at considerable expense and steamed once to test it, pre-delivery. The owner couldn't, unfortunately, be present at the steaming and still patiently awaits a promised video of the event. Quite what the scope of that test was is unclear to us, although it didn't appear to check the more esoteric things, like whether the wheels go round when you open the regulator.

Looking on the bright side it's in as-new condition, pushes along freely, shows no sign of wear whatsoever and has nice shiny brasswork.
