5 inch gauge GWR Metro - stock code 6245

A rather scruffy 5 inch gauge GWR 2-4-0T to Martin Evans' otherwise elegant "Metro" design - this one's come to us as part of a larger collection of engines from a prolific builder in both 3 1/2 and 5 inch gauge.

Boiler has had a hydraulic test and is sound, engine runs well in reverse, less well in forward so some attention to eccentric adjustment required here. Other than that it needs a good tidy up and repaint.
