7 1/4 inch narrow gauge tender - stock code 7957

A finely made 7 1/4 inch narrow gauge tender by the estimable Keith Massey of Hazel Grove - regular readers will know the awe in which we hold this builder who completely redefined the term prolific, if not head over to the blog entry about him here.
He built batches of Hunslets in both 5 inch and 7 1/4 inch gauge - we had his own 5 inch gauge engine some years ago, there are pictures in the archive here. I suspect that this tender originally belonged to one of the larger engines - be nice to know where it is now.

Somewhat grubby and in need of a repaint, underneath the tender is beautifully made - steel chassis and rivetted bodywork, with a brass water tank. Front wheels are braked, there's a tap for an injector water feed at the front. Seat is a basic wooden bench over a coal space with sliding shutter.
