part-built 3 1/2 inch gauge "Britannia" - stock code 3658

Much of a decently made "Britannia" to LBSC's design for 3 1/2 inch gauge. There's a complete, air-running chassis fitted up with gunmetal cylinders, piston valves are actuated by Walschaert's valve gear. Chassis is complete with water pump, drain cocks fitted to cylinders complete with linkage, exhaust pipe with blast nozzle and blower ring.

There is a box of assorted bits and bobs, including most of a cab, smoke deflectors, machined chimney, smokebox with rings and door and assorted fasteners and fittings including an injector.

Tender is pretty much complete.

I had a good one of these earlier in the year which went particularly well, there are pictures of it in the archive if you want to see just how well they can be finished.
