It does look rather nice, although I cannot get the impression out of my head it is the Bure Valley's 'Greenbat' mixed with a Knightwing-bash!

The Bure Valley's 'Greenbat' is currently only a wagon!

Very clear to see just how much the loco is based on our 'John Rennie' and 'Bayhurst' at Ruislip. The view from the rear is the spitting image of John Rennie, with exactly the same paint job although the cab is a totally different shape. It does look rather smart, even if I must say that I'm not at all keen on the cab!

I'd be interested to know (and compare!) any technical details if anybody has them?

If Matt, or anybody, has any details, general dimensions etc, it would be interesting to see them.
