It makes an interesting model. There were many designs of Stirling singles and not all had slots in the splashers, so that makes a nice change. I would have to disagree on the alleged wheel arrangement though; if the 2nd and 3rd axle are connected, albeit by gears rather than rods, that makes it a 2-4-2. That would actually be quite an effective way of motorising a model of an 0-4-4 tanks as the weight could be better balanced as a gear coupled 2-4-2. Better still, gear all the axles and make it an 0-8-0!
The only British loco I can think of with 9 foot drivers are the Pearson Broad Gauge 4-2-4 well tanks. Hmmm
