Gauge 1 GWR 4-6-0 - stock code 8877

A gauge 1 Great Western 4-6-0, somewhat dilapidated and with paintwork of the tar brush tendency.

Boiler is gas-fired - there's a tank in the tender and some pipework, but the burner tube is missing.

On the bright side, it turns over freely and runs lustily on air in both directions.
