Not a clue, but I would be thinking of The Imperial War Museum as a likely place to look. Probably have a website, ah, a searchable image collection even, http://collections.iwm.org.uk/ Good luck.

 

Amberley Chalk Pit Museum has some WW1 narrow gauge like Simplex locos I think, an ex-boss who volunteered there took me for a putter round on such a thing.

Hi, is there anywhere on the web I can find pictures of narrow gauge locos in service on the front line as im looking at building a small layout in 009 set in the first world war. Thanks in advance!

There is a site dedicated to the War Department Light Railways.

My own photo of one of the Hunslet 4-6-0Ts in the Australian War Memorial.

You could join the narrow miltary rail yahoo group and the war office loco society groups on yahoo,

On the wdlr site, if you click on research there is a search facility for the austrailian war memorial site.

 

The imperial war museum site also has quite a lot of pictures.

 

Edit: pete wilsons 'willesden junction' is a good example of OO9 ww1 modelling,

some pictures here - http://campbell-modelrailway.fotopic.net/c1124166.html

 

and some more on the narrowmilitaryrail group
