5 inch gauge GWR Prairie - stock code 8081

A 5 inch gauge GWR Prairie, assembled from a kit but unsteamed from new - it was subsequently partly dismantled, after which the project stalled.
Pushes along freely, largely complete with a quantity of removed parts and steam-raising blower.
Most of the pictures opposite show the engine in its current condition, with a couple of it when first completed.
Regulator is currently removed, precluding us testing the boiler, however we're happy to warranty it as sound - it has club certification for a twice working pressure hydraulic test, done before assembly in 2009.
