After seeing a 5" gauge model of the locomotive, I quite fancied building a smaller one around about Mamod scale, however as with most ideas it got put to the back of my mind and nothing done about it. However, one day I was going through the spare parts drawer and coming across a spare set of Mamod loco wheels and this happened:
In this photo the locomotive is only a rolling chassis with no engine components inside of it. The boiler was from and old Mamod Minor 1, the frames were milled from some aluminium sheet and the rest was just from bits found in the workshop. The pencil for a chimney is only a temporary feature! Further work has progressed on this since the photo was taken - it's a case of finding the photos! Unfortunately work on this project has slowed down...something about 5 years of university getting in the way!
