A 5 inch gauge "Maid of Kent" 4-4-0, comprising chassis, complete tender and a commercially built CE-marked boiler by Western Steam.

Stored under a bench for some years, the chassis is slightly stiff to turn over although runs on air - it need dismantling to clean and lubricate before reassembling.
