unless you strike lucky and find a shop with one left, I have the Std 5MT green L/C running number 73014 (372-728)
Time for an update :)
Yes! the good news is that I found one (73014)
the not quite so good news is that she will not get her Xmas prez till after Xmas now.

Thanks to everyone for all your suggestions, much appreciated.
The Duchess will have to wait a bit, until the moths have got over their fright :)

Shame they didn't line the tender LMS-style with the upper lining following the line of the tender top...

The lining on the tender side is a rectangle, following the pattern of the GWR.   LMS style would have had the shape of the lining follow the shape of the tender side.
