5 inch gauge "Maid of Kent" - stock code 5735

A 5 inch gauge "Maid of Kent", built to the LBSC design in its inside cylinder, Joy gear variant. Finished many years ago, it has never been steamed from new, spending many years sitting on display in the builder's living room. The engine is well made, has a excellent commercially-built copper boiler by the estimable Mr Chambers and runs well on air. Paintwork is pretty grim.
