Part-built 5 inch gauge Standard Class 2 - stock code 2957

An early stage Standard Class 2 to Don Young's design. Workmanship is to a variable standard - wheels and cylinders look good, the frames and stretchers are all laser cut, axleboxes and axles pretty grotty (although there are spare sets of horns and axleboxes). There is a bag full of commercial boiler fittings including a pair of injectors and water valves, pair safety valves, fountain and clacks.

There is a complete, clean set of Don Young drawings and the issues of "Locomotives Large and Small" describing construction.

I've just sold another, complete one - pictures here.
