5 inch gauge "Sweet Pea" 0-4-0ST - stock code 8808

A venerable example of the ever-popular "Sweet Pea" design, dating from the early 1990s.

Chassis is complete and free to turn over. Boiler is structurally sound, although with a couple of beads of water showing at the throatplate on hydraulic test. Not difficult to get at once the boiler is dismounted - we would regard this as a repair rather than replacement.

Cosmetically untidy, it would be a good candidate for a winter strip down, overhaul and repaint.
