And if that doesn't work go for: j_tilston@sky.com which should definitely be current as it his email given in Mosely Matters, which he is editor of. http://www.mrt.org.uk/ is of course well worth a look (or join, there are only just over 100 of us!) for small industrial jobbies. best

Simon,

Looking good!

I wondered if you (or Steve, given his comment above) had the basic dimensions. Also, any idea about what is the weight of that portable rail per lb or kg?

All info very welcome.

Looking at the photo's a little closer, it certainly appears that it was built that way, rather than having been modified. There are no bolt holes in the frames for fixing the axleboxes in the normal position, so unless it also has new frames as well, which I would think unlikely, Lister built it w...

I don't know if it's online anywhere, but there's a wonderful picture of the Heywood Estate engine shed, that look just like the layout you are proposing - you might want to take a look at it for composition and "atmospherics". Are you perhaps thinking of the pic at the 'entrance' to the ...

David,

Thanks very much for diving in with more info and a new pic.

Meanwhile, anything you care to impart along the lines of:

actual dimensions (h w l and wt) source of engine and gearbox, wheel size and wheelbase etc would be warmly welcomed at this end of the UK.
