5 inch gauge part-built LNER B1 - stock code 4963

An exceptionally well-built LNER B1 to Martin Evans' "Springbok" design, comprising chassis and all platework - it requires a tender, boiler and fittings to complete. Fit and finish of the motionwork is excellent, the platework is very crisply made.

There's lots of pictures of completed B1s in the archive if you want to have a look at what one looks like finished, it's the most popular 5 inch gauge tender engine we get in by some margin, testimony to a well-sorted design that produces a good-looking, powerful engine.

We've currently got a new CE-marked boiler in stock suitable for this engine.
