  1. I see Mortons have brought out something on The Colonel https://www.mortonsbooks.co.uk/product/view/productCode/5587 Is it any good?
  2. Ffestiniog ditto but they were very helpful
  3. Well, Woody Bay has no Woody Bay I am afraid.................
  4. Living in that part of the world they certainly did exist & I remember seeing a rather nice photo of a Peak hauled freight between Redland and Clifton Down
  5. Thank you for that I have e-mailed the L&B to see if they have any, the Ffestiniog & Arcadiarail websites didnt show it in stock so here is hoping.

  11. Thinking about it, Bullied proved that a loco with 6ft2 whee;ls could run very fast and I am told that when a Western driver wanted speed, a Hall was the loco of choice with 6ft wheels, so what about a small wheeled Castle? Might not have the top speed but it could make up for it in acceleration & going up hill.
  12. Thank you I realise that it isnt exactly what you want but it might be a starting point.
