Photographs opposite were taken this morning, words below from January. There are a few more pictures in the archive here, showing what lurks "under the bonnet".
A robustly constructed 7 1/4 inch gauge petrol-hydraulic shunter, using a 9hp electric start four stroke engine coupled to the inevitable Eaton transmission. It's come to us from the builder, having had little use since he finished it - he's now on with a pair of steam locomotives in the same gauge, the latest in a string of similar sized projects.
Fitted with two tone horns and electric cooling fan for the transmission, complete with a comfortable ride in tender. Paintwork has been done to a good standard and remains in excellent condition.
