5 inch gauge "Sweet Pea" 0-4-0ST - stock code 8090

A "Sweet Pea" 0-4-0ST, built in 1992 and run regularly before a rebuild in 2013, since when it has had infrequent use.
Mechanically it's in good condition, it steams freely and runs well. The previous owner added a good deal of ballasting to aid adhesion, making it a substantial two man lift (I thought I was just getting older until we had a closer look!)
There's a clip here of it running outside the workshop yesterday - hot and sunny up here in Lincolnshire, like pretty well everywhere else at the moment!
