IP Engineering "Fury"

Has anyone got any pics or more info on the IP Engineering "Fury"? Here's an article I scanned a number of years ago from an even older magazine of my Dad's.

Sold my last bought loco

Over the years I have sold off my 3 bought locos. This past weekend my last one went to its new home. The last run I gave it was on the rollers in August 2019 :thumbup:

I don't know...

Re: Live steam at a bargain price...?

Re: Wild Rose ~ Quarry Hunslet

I'm really looking forward to another run Rod, but the weather is against me :thumbup: If it's not raining it's blowing a gale. In the meantime have I made another cover for the real steam dome. The old one leaked at the thread when using my gentle thread sealant or PTFE tape, it was visible at stea...
