7 1/4 inch gauge LNER V2 - stock code 6468

A barn find 7 1/4 inch gauge LNER V2, last run in 2005 and stored since. Built as a two cylinder engine, superheated steel boiler with thermic syphons, it's nicely made and well-detailed - years in storage haven't been kind to the brightwork, which is liberally covered in surface rust. Motionwork is seized which looks like pistons and piston valves stuck in their bores, one superheater element looks to leak at the front, there's a leak in the right hand thermic syphon although otherwise the boiler looks dry on hydraulic test.
