Part-built 5 inch gauge "Sweet Pea" with boiler - stock code 9320

A well-advanced "Sweet Pea" 0-4-2ST, comprising complete chassis, smokebox assembly and a silver soldered copper boiler.

The chassis turns over freely without tight spots. Overall it looks reasonable (if rather grubby), although with a good deal of slop in the die blocks - it would not be a big job to replace them.

Boiler has been neatly made - we suspect built from a flanged kit of parts - with good solder penetration.

Complete with a copy of the "Sweet Pea" build manual.
