7 1/4 inch gauge "Bridget" 0-4-2T - stock code 5640

I bought this from the builder in 2009 - a very capable chap, responsible for the super 3 inch Allchin I've just sold, builder of a Gold Medal-winning Midland Spinner in 5 inch gauge and currently working on a 7 1/4 inch gauge Terrier. There are some pictures in the archive taken when it arrived.

Three years on, the engine still runs well, but needs attention to a leaking wet header and some repainting. Other than that, it remains the nicest-built "Bridget" we've seen in the workshop here.
