3 1/2 inch gauge "Sweet Violet" 0-4-0ST - stock code 7683

A barn find 3 1/2 inch gauge "Sweet Violet", the scaled down version of "Sweet Pea". It's suffered in poor storage, there's rust to the brightwork - mainly light although the connecting and coupling rods are going to need a good clean up. Chassis runs along and appears to be complete to air-running stage, boiler is silver soldered copper.

Certainly needs stripping completely and cleaning, however under the muck and rust there's most of a running engine here - with some concerted effort, it could be up and running for next season.
