The locomotive remains in original condition, as it left the factory. At worst has been test run and displayed from new. Complete in every respect and includes original box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue. Also a detailed description and brief history of the Streamlined Bulleid! Note: the underneath is clearly stamped as follows PACKER NUMBER 3 PRODUCTION CODE 61145 confirming a build date of November 1986!

The SR West Country and Battle of Britain classes, collectively known as Light Pacific's or informally as Spam Cans, are air-smoothed 4-6-2 Pacific steam locomotives designed for the Southern Railway by its Chief Mechanical Engineer Oliver Bulleid. They were amongst the first British designs to use welding in the construction process, and steel fireboxes. This meant that components could be more easily constructed under wartime austerity and post-war economy!
