15" Lister for Sale

Postby Colin Peake » Mon Dec 29, 2014 8:23 am

The much-rebuilt Lister from Cleethorpes is for sale: http://www.mrwrailways.co.uk/secondhand/locomotives/

I know the rebuild isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it isn't that often a Lister comes up for sale in any form, so I thought it worth a mention. Although I do know the seller I am not connected to the sale in any way.

As a 15" gauge loco I think it looks fine as it is.

I'm surprised Mountaineer is up for sale, I do hope it goes to a good home and there is opportunity to see it on a publicly accessible railway.

I have to admit it is a bit brutal when you have good memories of it in 'Toby' tram guise....

'Mountaineer' is privately owned by Chris Shaw, former owner of the CCLR and was not included in the sale of the railway, hence it is now for sale separately as a private sale. The same is true of the boiler advertised below it.

Fair enough Colin! I didn't realise it is the same loco as previously incarnated as Toby

To be fair, Toby ain't exactly the railroad equivalent of the Parthenon.

I just irks me when people turn industrial locos into pretty choo - choos. The Lister rail truck is a design classic - as built they are stripped down and basic, particularly the diesel variants - they have nothing on them which is not absolutely essential, this gives them, in my eyes at least, an austere beauty.
