Scratch Built Locomotive originally built in 1994 by the late Brian Watt. Cylinders and motion are original Roundhouse Engineering parts. This locomotive was originally constructed with body side cylinders, with part open bodywork. The original build and subsequent modification were documented in Garden Rail October 1996.
Of which copies are enclosed with the locomotive (see pictures). Modifications were made to remove this and place the cylinders in normal positions (also by Brian).This resulted in part length body side fabrication. The last modification was completed in late 1999 to the body and motion seen today. These were also done by the late Brian Watt and made the loco more "normal". In 2019 the loco was partly rebuilt, to the same design, to replace some worn out parts.
