5 inch gauge LB&SCR "Terrier" 0-6-0T - stock code 8156

A new, unsteamed LB&SCR "Terrier", built to Martin Evans' "Boxhill" design - same builder as the GWR County we currently have in, a retired toolmaker.

Machining is very crisp throughout, fit and finish good. Platework is well done, the engine is nicely detailed. Paintwork is an unusual choice of livery, brush applied to a reasonable standard.

Commercially-built silver soldered copper boiler by Kellett of Manchester - we have its original paperwork, it's had a hydraulic test in recent days.

Runs on air, it will undoubtedly need work to commission for steaming, including sealing most of the fittings and attention to a leaky regulator.
Complete with a length of display track.
