5 inch gauge LMS Black 5 for restoration - stock code 8491

A 5 inch gauge Black 5, part-way through a long-ago stalled restoration. Very grubby, although underneath it's nicely made with finely proportioned valve gear and motionwork, it pushes along freely.

Complete with front bogie, outer dome, smokebox door and chimney, along with copies of Don Young's construction articles and a new set of drawings.
