Built as a two cylinder engine, the standard of machining is good, chassis is well executed and nicely detailed including dummy Wakefield lubricators, working leaf springs on the driving wheels and tender and castellated nuts fitted throughout the motionwork.
Paintwork is poor, the green has been applied over brass cladding sheets without etch primer, so has taken to falling off in large flakes.
The engine came to us without paperwork - although the firebox and smokebox evidence past use, it hasn't been steamed for some time. On visual inspection the boiler is a gauge thinner than we'd expect for something of this size - a pity, as it's otherwise well made.
