Why can't all busses be like this?

This was built at the Statfold Barn Railway workshops, and was running at the open day last Saturday (June 6th). It runs on 2 foot gauge.

I want one! :mrgreen:
And I want one of these.

Its a replica of a compressed air loco used in coal mines in the North East.
The extra bit of rail you can see is because this is mixed gauge track, 2 foot and 2 foot 6 inch. The pointwork is interesting, and the two foot rail swaps sides on the balloon loop with no moving parts.

Statfold is a great day out if you can make one of their regular open days.

The Goose would nicely fit on a UE chassis.
That point work and mixed gauge exchange track looks interesting.

Narrow gauge Francophile interested in 1m, 60cm,50cm , 40cm and smaller gauges . Build in scales from 1/6th to 1/24th. Also 1/32nd and 1/35th using 16.5mm track to represent 50cm and 60cm gauges.
