A recently completed "Sweet Pea" 0-4-2ST, the work of a retired toolmaker who is a prolific builder - in recent times this one occupied him for ten months, whilst simultaneously building an LMS 3F. Steamed three times from new to check valve setting and overall performance, it remains in as-new condition. Like many "Sweet Peas", this one has been modified to suit the builder's sense of aesthetics, the short chimney and abreviated spectacle giving it a "gas works shunter" look.
Commercially built silver soldered boiler by G.B.Boiler Services, 2016. 80psi working pressure, feed by mechanical pump with auxiliary hand pump. Cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Hackworth gear, pole reverser. Twin displacement lubricators.
