5 inch gauge kit-built Britannia - stock code 7847

A "barn find" kit-build Britannia, superficially grubby with a light coating of surface rust over much of it. Largely complete, with a bound set of assembly instructions.

A growing number of these kit Britannia are now running at clubs around the country - there is a good deal of information available on getting them going, with some work the design can be turned into a reliable performer. We've had these in regularly over the years, including this nicely put together example that ran beautifully.
