Built in 1998 and unsteamed from new, the boiler is in as-new condition throughout. Boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test with certificate issued for same. The engine runs absolutely beautifully on air, with crisp, square exhaust beats; nearly inaudible running notched up close to mid-gear - there's some video of it running here.
Pictures tell the story on this one. Standard of workmanship is excellent throughout - machining is very crisp, fit and finish of the valve gear and motion work of a high order; platework is neatly formed and rivetted, the boiler is the equal of any commercially built one.
One of the best examples of this design we've seen.
