Re: Identification help please

Thank you for the information. Very pleased with the engine build quality. It looks a treat running around pulling a few smaller industrial work type trucks. Tony

Re: Rail chairs

Thank you for your reply , I now believe my brass rail to be code 332 section not 330! Please see this link to explain. https://www.gardenrailways.co.uk/category-45.html . Slowly unravelling the identity and possibly a solution !

Be a shame not to use it to make my own 32mm gauge track!

Re: Identification help please

Thank you for all the advice on wagon size and scale. I am impressed by PS models kits, the prices seem most affordable to a new garden railway recruit!! The history of this engine DOT is quite fascinating so thank you for that. This forum had been so helpful.

Re: Identification help please

Please forgive my lack of knowledge but what scale trucks should I be looking to buy for this engine. It runs on 32mm track, the trucks I currently have look way to big. Thanks. Tony

Re: Identification help please

Thank you , the model appears to be die cast or soldered white metal. It has a lovely frame and gearbox and the running gear is quiet and powerful. Will run for ages pulling two or three wagons . A lucky find perhaps!
