Hi there Alan, Okay, so likely 7.25" gauge: in that case I think a quick peruse through the Greenly steam locomotive book to see if there's any rough matches for the chassis might be a good idea. Also is it Doug Hewson's site which has zipped up csv (for Excel) indexes for model engineer? You could try searching in them for 2-8-0: again it's the chassis I'd try to track down (and the boiler assuming that's 'pucker') - the rest of it looks freelance... ...actually quick question - it is steam I assume - and not something like an abortive attempt at a steam engine which has had a petrol engine put inside it? Yours, Rich.
