5 inch gauge Sweet Pea - stock code 5455

A Sweet Pea which came from the same owner as the very fine part-built GWR "King" we sold recently. This one was last used nearly ten years ago, since when it has languished in a garage getting a little dismantled and a lot grubby.

It's had a hydraulic test this week, the boiler is in good order and the engine runs very well on air - motionwork is in good order and valve beats regular.

It requires plenty of cleaning, ideally a repaint and replacement of the missing safety valves and chimneys. This one is about as straightforward a restoration job as you get, it could be up and running at the club track after an energetic Saturday's work.
