Same builder (and similar vintage) as the Great Eastern 2-4-0 we sold recently. It has similarly suffered in storage over the years, paintwork is shabby.
The commercially built boiler is by Chambers of Weymouth - structurally sound, although with one minor weep on a tube end which would take up under steam.
Mechanically it rolls freely and runs nicely on air in both directions.
