We'd put this one at about 95% complete. The boiler has had a twice working pressure shell test, the chassis runs very well on air in both directions. Machining is crisp throughout, fit and finish of motion and valve gear excellent.
There is work required to commission for steaming, including sealing fittings and pipework, and attention to a pinhole leak in the superheater element return bend. Boiler cladding has a minor cosmetic ding in the top.
