Just thought it would be a fun idea if we all shared our locomotives, whether they be for garden, private, or commercial use. It's always interesting to see the differences in the type and sizes in use around the country...
So here goes, the first entry is by myself with a few side shots taken at our last "fun day"



This is Smokey Joe, our number one engine. A 5/8th scale Bagnall designed to work in the Turkish mines...



This is Pet, based on the infamous Kerr Stuart Wren, a small contractors locomotive



This is Lottie, a 5/8th scale lister railtruck. Although since this photo was taken, we have repainted her a darker green, and she has the weights between the axles to hide the lay shaft.



Here you can see Anne in the station, waiting to take another train down our half mile of track. Anne is based on a small loco used in the power station where Keith Hardy, the designer and builder of this and the two steam loco's, used to work.


Well, there we go. I've shown you ours, so now you shouw us yours....!

Our main (& only!) loco on the Penrose Light Railway:

2-4-2 petrol mechanical built by Bruce Whalley (Weston Park) a few years back...out of action for the moment until track laying has reached a good length...Steam in a few years time possibly!

Interesting loco Charles, I know a few people who would be looking at that and planning a model in Gn15 using a Bachmann On30 mechanism!

Feel free to circulate the photo to your fellow modellers if you wish Colin...

Here's a pic of another loco owned by one of the forum members - "Bertie" owned by Kevin Bennett - hopefully this will encourage Kevin into posting about his locos ;)

The PLR loco is fantastic Charles. We could do with a fifteen inch gauge version to take up some of the load on our railwy. Can see it now, winding past the tree house on a rainy day...
Good luck with the track laying, i know it can be hard work at times, but stick at it. It'll be worth it in the end!

I too would be interested in all your previous locomotives. Having said that though, if you are like me and all the bikes i have owned, you'll only have a couple of shots of one as you were always too busy playing! :rolleyes:

Very true! It amounts to 2 7¼" Gauge Holmside locos,a 7¼" gauge class 47 (now in ireland), a 5" gauge class 20, 15" Gauge Porthcawl Loco (now back in wales) 15" Gauge Battison (at Cleethorpes) 15" gauge blaise castle tram (now back with Austin) 15" Gauge Foxglove (ex Blaise Castle) Now in Bits, and currently own the 7¼" gauge battery loco and 7¼" gauge sit in thing, being rebuilt. Quite a list for a 25 year old!!!!!!!!! So wish i had kept some, but being 25 money aint forthcoming, especially when the first house comes along.............
