5 inch gauge LMS "Royal Scot" - stock code 5267

Quite the most horrible "Royal Scot" I've ever seen - amazingly it wasn't the only product of this builder's workshop, we had his 5 inch gauge "Britannia" last year which was built with a similar disregard for any kind of engineering or aesthetic sensibilities. The strange thing about both engines though was that they both ran and, indeed, were used at the builder's club track. Knowing his limits, the one redeeming feature of both engines were the nicely made, CE-marked Priory boilers - the one for the Royal Scot supplied new in May 2006.
