Winson A4 - stock code 2575

Largely complete A4 Pacific. Originally a kit-built engine, the chassis is complete and turns over freely, the boiler and streamlining are loosely assembled, tender is complete.

Copper silver-soldered boiler with superheaters, twin safety valves, stainless steel grate. Three cylinders, piston valves actuated by Gresley-Holcroft conjugated gear.

From what I can see, almost everything is there to complete - there is a box of assorted plumbing for the boiler, lubricators etc which requires fitting. Most of the backhead fittings are there, with the exception of one water gauge top fitting. The streamlining is loosely fitted for the photographs and would, given a little effort, fit rather more convincingly.

Length approx 80 inches overall

gauge 5 inch
