5 inch gauge part-built LNER B1 4-6-0 - stock code 8424

A dismantled 5 inch gauge LNER B1 to Martin Evans' "Springbok" design, it's come to us from a long-time customer who is downsizing to 16mm scale in retirement, along with another B1 he has recently completed.

We're told that the chassis has been together and running on air in the past, the new boiler was largely built by the owner, although soldered together commercially.

Complete with binders containing copies of the original construction articles and a box of drawings.
