5 inch gauge part-built "Edward Thomas" 0-4-2ST - stock code 6816

A well-advanced 5 inch gauge "Edward Thomas" to the well-regarded Ross Harrison design, the work of two builders to date. Bottom end was believed to be commercially built by the previous owner, it certainly shows very crisp machining and is nicely detailed. Saddle tank is nicely made, cab and superstructure a little more pedestrian. Boiler is in copper, silver soldered with all fittings - nicely made, it's complete, the tubeplate shown in the pictures is a spare (as, indeed, is the saddle tank - it's got two).
