I had based my guess of English loco on most of the pipework as being out of sight and internal cylinders being more common on English locos. Happy to be wrong on that but I still think that the modelling is too detailed for it not to be based on an actual loco.

Is anyone planning to bid? Let me know privately via email, or I might leave a bid on it. Being from a railway family it is a subject I like but do not research. My uncle would ID it in a flash but he is off-line and not very easy to contact, only personal visits would work.

Just to say that this has sold today on ebay for £31.   It didn't sell first time round, but seller relisted it and this time three bidders, the winner being "daveweight".   Anyone we know?
