We sold this one earlier in the year, but it's recently come back in part exchange. It's essentially ready to go, and certainly runs well enough. (see video),..... but we're going to describe it fairly as 'a little bit of a 'project' GNR C1 Atlantic'! She's an LBSC Maisie of course, it's actually quite nicely made but at some point it has been attacked with a wriggling ferret and large tin of particularly viscous paint! If you can see past the finish, there's a decent Maisie hidden underneath. It's been, we think, a running model before coming to us, and judging by the boiler only lightly so), and then at some point someone with marginally less skill has decided to add a little more detail and of course,.... the paint. The good news however is that it's now fully tested, certificated and ready to play, with the only remaining issue that we can find being that the drafting would benefit from fiddling around with either the blast pipe height, bore, or perhaps the air flow through the ashpan. It's not economically viable for us here to invest more time tinkering and steaming her to improve anything further, so she's therefore a cheep ready to play Maisie that you can enjoy and improve.
With a little tlc this could be a great little loco again. The usual bits and bobs are there, mechanical lubricator, axle pump with bypass, injector and of course the hand pump in the tender.
