Part-built 3 1/2 inch gauge "Hall" - stock code 2881

Like the "Manor" that has just sold, these engines had both come to the previous builder part-complete, the intention was to finish them as a pair. Rather than try to make an arbitrary split on which bit goes with which engine, I've put the lot in one big box. If you're going to make one you might as well make two, you know it makes sense.

3 1/2 inch gauge Hall(s) to LBSC's "Lickham Hall" design. Comprises a pair of rolling chassis, each with saddle, smokebox and chimney, front bogies, cylinders, eccentric sheaves, straps and rods. There is one boiler, a set of tender wheels and a box full of machined and unmachined blobs and gadgets for same and a set of LBSC blueprints.

Work thus far all looks quite decent, get cracking now, you'll be double-heading by Easter.
