  3. Hi Jim . I'm (hopefully) making this loco as they are a bit of a favourite of mine,plus when I was a boy Triangle used to do one asCKD (completely knocked down) ..It was supplied as a kit of parts it cost 47 shillings &6d if my memory serves me correctly .A loco complete was about £5 which was a lot of money for my parents ,so it was a cheaper way of getting a BIG engine good times I just hope that I have the skills to finish it John
