Part-built 5 inch gauge "Butch" - stock code 3805

A well-advanced "Butch" 0-6-0T, built to a good standard and with much work already done. The silver-soldered copper boiler is largely complete, chassis is pretty much ready to run. There is a box of bits including some nicely made side tanks, a machined chimney along with a pattern and spare casting for same, axle pump with eccentric strap and rod, grate, inner dome and regulator and brake gear.

I had a complete specimen in last year, due for a restoration although still in running order - there are some pictures and a clip of it running here if you want to see what the finished article looks (and sounds) like.
