The engines shown opposite are expected to be with us shortly, or have just arrived
- 7 1/4 inch gauge Rebuilt Royal Scot 6115
A 7 1/4 inch gauge Rebuilt Royal Scot, nine years in the build by a highly experienced engineer. Recently had its first ten year overhaul, repaint and varnish; boiler was retubed with a new hydraulic shell test conducted. In steam outside our works this morning for the first time since completion - mechanically very quiet, it runs well.
- 7 1/4 inch gauge BR Standard Class 8 2-8-2
One of British Railways' "might have beens", a 2-8-2 proposed in the 1950s as a possible alternative to the 9F. Based on the original works general arrangement drawing, the engine has been steamed four times from new, it runs exceptionally well. Quiet, notches up nearly to mid gear in either direction - and feels like it could pull a house down!
