Based on the dock shunters built by Avonside for the GWR in 1926, it makes a compact, powerful engine in 7 1/4 inch gauge with generous bearing surfaces and robustly proportioned valve gear.
The engine came to us earlier in the year with several other locomotives in exchange for a large narrow gauge engine.
It runs well, boiler has had recent test with certification for same. Machining of motionwork and valve gear is very crisp, fit and finish good throughout.
