Goodmorning Fellows, (Well it is mnorning by my anyway). The person who bought the "Prairie" loco is a first time buyer on Ebay. I just looked up the details of the sale and have emailed him asking for verification of the stainless steel boiler and what is he going to do about a boiler certificate. He may have redress through Ebay if he can not get a certificate as I noticed that in the replies section the seller stated that there would not be a problem in getting a new certificate. We will wait and see what the reply is.
