7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet 0-4-0 - stock code 8189

A well-advanced 7 1/4 inch gauge Hunslet 0-4-0ST in 3 inch scale - this is the manageable size one that fits in an estate car, not the 4 inch scale design that needs a trailer.
Chassis is largely complete, machining has been crisply executed, fit and finish good. Doesn't roll - it's stuck through standing and needs the cylinder end covers off to free off - however according to the builder it has run on air in the past. Pump eccentric sheave is fitted to the back axle, strap and rod machined ready to fit.
There is a box of loose parts including pump eccentric strap and rod, boiler fittings, works plates, petticoat pipe, dome shroud and some platework.
Whilst still requiring time in the workshop, a project that could be completed with little further expenditure.
