Build history/future plans (In reverse numerical order)


I have built a variety of full sided locomotives. I do not build scale locos, but I do build locomotives that can be driven all day and the driver will not have backache afterwards. The works number of a locomotive represents the order in which they were started by me, the date on the makers plate shows the date they were finished.

No 15 201x



A minimum gauge double fairlie, with a close resemblance to the loco designed specifically to go 'back to Blaenau'. To be really pedantic, not a double fairlie at all, a Meyer - but nobody likes pedants!!


No 14 201x



A tinkerbell for a friend


No 13 2014



A tinkerbell rolling chassis for a friend, ready for him to complete


No 12 2014



A tinkerbell for a friend - a project he started at the same time as my pair but never found the time to finish


No 11 2015



A minimum gauge single fairlie, with a family resemblance to the Ffestiniog Railway's Taliesin.

Nos 9&10 2010



A pair of diesel hydraulics, based on the O&K MD1


No 8 2009
Gnat - A 4HP diesel hydraulic
No 7 201?

Invicta - a large pacific, currently in the design phase. To be built for the SNBR as a company locomotive. Just over 14' long.

A pair of tinkerbells. The second one has now left for her new home.
