5 inch gauge LNER D49 "Shire" Clarkson castings, boiler - stock code 7161

A large quantity of castings for Clarkson's 5 inch gauge LNER D49, Gresley's supremely elegant three cylinder 4-4-0. Castings are largely unmachined, there are some well-thumbed drawings, photographs of the preserved full-sized engine, parts list from the Clarkson catalogue and a finely made silver soldered boiler - amateur built, plates are well flanged and soldering has been done by an experienced hand with good penetration throughout.
