We sold this one in back in 2009, it's just come back in part exchange for the "Miss Ten to Eight" we had in recently. Pictures were taken this morning, words below are from 2009.
An unusual tank engine, based on LBSC's "Juliet" design, but with an additional rear truck to make it into an 0-4-4T - the builder lived on the Isle of Wight, and this was his nod towards the 0-4-4s that ran around the island. I can't get it out of my head it looks more like a single Fairlie, but that's artistic interpretation for you.
The engine hasn't been used in many years, it's pretty scruffy and really needs a good pre-season service.
