It was bought by the last owner's grandfather in Liverpool shortly after the war and subsequently rebuilt by his father in 1954 - the splashers bear brass plates recording the rebuild. A new boiler was made and fitted at that time, the engine hasn't been steamed since.
Unused in many years, it's come to us from the son of the man who rebuilt it in 1954 - both his father and grandfather built engines, several of which came to us as part of the same collection recently.
The engine rolls along freely and, after a liberal oil around, ran on air in both directions. The pole reverser is currently loose on the footplate and requires bolting down and reconnecting to the reach rod.
