- First Name
Hi all one for the railway modellers Narrow gauge though. Living in Stoke-on-Trent I have always been interested in Kerr Stuart the factory was only down the road from me but was long gone before I was aware of it. Having built a steam loco I needed a diesel to help with shunting duties. It will have to be self powered radio controlled and sound like the real thing. So the intention is to build the 1928 Diesel No 4415. The original logo still exists and is presently being restored at Boston Lodge on the Festiniog railway. The original was powered by a Maclaren 60 hp diesel driving a Jack shaft then chain drive to the three axles. Some say not a pretty Loco but I love the brutality of it. First installment to follow shortly. I hope this will be of interest.
