I'm not sure the gauge was relevant when it came to outside or inside frames, though it seems that all 5 of the sub 2' ones had outside frames.
The rest though were a bit of a mixture and it wasnt related to the engine either, both the 10hp and 20hp versions were produced with both types of frames.
If you are at all interested in these loco's the Moseley book is well worth getting and it has scale drawings of both versions.
Have to confess to being at bit biased toward the ZLH Rustons, as the one now owned by the Rampton Trust was the very first narrow gauge loco that I ever saw. I used to pass it almost every morning when I was a little kid, when it was owned by English China Clay down in Cornwall. Though at that time I was too young to understand what it was
