5 inch gauge Stirling 8 foot single for restoration - stock code 8626

A 5 inch gauge Stirling 8 foot single, dismantled originally to investigate a leaking regulator but, as so often happens, the locomotive then ended up in bits under the bench for years.

Chassis appears untouched and turns over freely - main disassembly work has been to take the boiler from the frames, involving removal of cab.

There is historic club paperwork with the boiler. We've removed the cladding and given it a twice working pressure hydraulic test at 200psi for 100psi working pressure, with certification issued for same.
