Selling this on behalf of a deceased friends family. The engine has been heavily modified to improve performance, here's a list of the modification
Petticoat/ blast pipe/ smokebox floor
Polly regulator
Bypass pump removed, sucked to much energy and put to much strain on left crankpin
Mechanical lubricator behind front buffer beam
New manifold and controls
New firebox doors
Twin injectors fitted. It would be very easy to change the pipework of one of these to collect water from driving trolley.
New cab roof, looking more realistic
Water taps in bunker water tank
Valves set and engine has good beat
Grate lowered to give bigger fire and heat

Engine was run on rolling road and has subsequently only run twice prior to friends demise on a track where it proved a capable steamer
Steam ticket until September 2021
Hydraulic until 2023
