5 inch gauge "Maid of Kent" 4-4-0 - stock code 9126

A venerable example of LBSC's "Maid of Kent" 4-4-0, completed in 1967.

Boiler appears to be the fifty year old original - silver soldered copper, it has has a couple of old plugged repairs on the foundation ring which remained watertight on hydraulic test.

Cosmetically scruffy but complete.
