5 inch gauge GWR Hall, dismantled, incomplete - stock code 5006

A strange find this, somebody appears to have dismantled a 5 inch gauge Great Western Hall, thrown about half of it away and dumped the remaining bits in two boxes and a bucket. No platework or boiler, but there is a chassis for locomotive and tender together with sets of wheels for both (and what looks like a spare set of tender wheel castings), a pair of cylinder assemblies, connecting and coupling rods along with much of the valve gear, including the eccentric sheaves and straps still mounted on the axle - probably enough to get an air-running chassis out of given some time in the workshop.
