Part-built 3 1/2 inch gauge Black 5 - stock code 5171

A well-advanced example of LBSC's "Doris", one of his most popular designs, comprising chassis complete with water pump and lubricator, part-built boiler with most of the material to complete and a tender. Work to date is pretty good underneath the muck - the chassis turns stiffly although without tight spots, a wash through the cylinders with paraffin and a good lube round afterwards looks as if it would see an air-running chassis.

Complete with a set of drawings.

There are pictures of numerous completed engines in the archive including this one which came back recently as a part exchange - it will be listed shortly.
