Originally this locomotive was built from a kit to an average standard, however recently it has been professionally restored by John Jarvis.
It has been fully stripped down and re-built adding a host of details such as brake gear, smoke box handles, cab interior including real wood flooring, realistic coal, sprung buffers, number plates, new pick-ups, whistles and much more.
It has been finished in BR black and numbered 5308.
The locomotive has been track tested on Peco track work - It is a very good runner when going forward but does seem to stick in places when in reverse.
Essentially in mint condition after being rebuilt and painted.
