|3 1/2 inch gauge 0-6-0T "PV Baker" - stock code 7531|
A 3 1/2 inch gauge "P.V.Baker", LBSC's freelance 0-6-0T featuring piston valves and Baker valve gear. Or in this case, not - the Baker bit was removed years ago for a rebuild which stalled, what we're left with is a rather decently made engine, complete except for any means of making the valves move. Although requiring some hours in the workshop, material cost for recreating the missing bits will be just about zero - it could be rebuilt as per the master's words and music, I'd probably fit it up with Walshaerts gear instead.
Boiler has had a twice working pressure hydraulic test and is sound, it's complete with all fitting bar a missing blowdown valve.
