L&Y steam railmotor

One of the more successful British steam railmotors introduced by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway from 1906. Later modified so a corridor connnection could be made to a matching trailer coach. The loco and coach were articulated.
The last example just survived into British Railways, but was never renumbered.
Model requires chassis. Loco body should be separated from coach body, and articulated to it.
