This gem appears to be an old scratch built gauge-3 model of an A1? I couldn't find the name "Wee Lass" in my 1956 ABC. Maybe coal fired too.

It's a little bit freelance - the cab isn't right for an LNER pacific, nor a Britannia :shake: :shake:

I've seen 'something' very similar to that... In a book SW has (I think)?? :think: :think: :think:

Does the 'general arrangement' in the cab, give any clues as to the manufacturer? - Trying to find pictures of early live steam models, to compare.. :think::think:

Possibly inspired by LBSC "Fayette"? The cab looks similar. Fayette
Pretty Sure it’s an LBSC (curly - active from the First World War to the 1950s) designed 2.5 inch gauge Fayette
It ll have US Baker Valve gear if it is!
As all were built by individuals they have all sorts of variations depending on the builders preferences
I’ve seen them with Vanderbilt tenders; South African styled running plates etc
I’ve a double sized one myself where the builder doubled everything on the drawings producing a 5” gauge loco that you can drive by riding on the tender !
A real beast of an engine, very heavy to lift
