where to find more info on this loco?

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

Built by Patrick Henshaw. I used to have more in my archives, but I cannot locate it. Would love rough dimensions and perhaps some construction details.

Hi Chris,

You need issue 9 of the Miniature Railway magazine.

The follow on similar build for Alexander Henshaw is in the same issue. Better still the plywood chassis details for Alexander's loco are in the Minimal Group files section, see:

Thanks Chris. I knew one of the Two Chris' would have a drawing. (my apologies to Mssrs. Barker & Corbett)

Somehow I missed 2 of the THREE pages in that PDF from my own library! LOL

Cheers,

C.
