See Leigh Valley Light Railway YouTube Channel for videos of this particular locomotive. Unfortunately my phone prevents me from copying YouTube links!

What's going on?! I didn't think I particularly liked Garratts, but this baby one's such a beauty you've almost got me counting my coppers... I think I can just about resist, but it's close - I hope it finds the good home it deserves!

Thanks guy's!
Must admit I don't particularly like blue engines, but this blue (and Oxford blue) do look good when lined correctly on some locomotives.

Well if I can make an exception for Garratts, I'm sure you can for blue engine!

This one's my favourite - it's only just blue!

I'm not too fond of Garratts, but that's a nice looking loco and it suits that shade of blue.

Here's my favourite blue engine.

Sell the pride of the line?!! No chance!

Anything Narrow Gauge seem to have a nice green one at a reasonable price - https://anythingnarrowgauge.co.uk/secon ... ct_id=1603

I'm actually saving up for another Hunslet, a "Lilla", otherwise I'd be seriously tempted by these Baby Garratts, they seem to be extraordinarily good value, and geared locos are perfect for my line. They sort of, almost, nearly, fit my WHR theme too...
