5 inch gauge NE 0-8-0 - stock code 5974

Another engine from the large collection of models built by Keith Massey - there's more information about this exceptional engineer here.

This is a new, unsteamed North Eastern 0-8-0 to LBSC's "Netta" design. It runs like a sewing machine (there's a clip of it running on air here), fit and finish is excellent throughout. Attention to detail extends to the superbly made extension controls for regulator, reverser and steam valves. As always with this builder, virtually nothing is bought in, from the twin ram lubricator to the finely turned handrail stanchions on the boiler (which have a slender elegance unlike any commercially available items I've seen).
