I believe we have to credit Chris Walker with this excellent find

Great link, especially for the pictures.

After a quick read-trough, I'm heartened to know I can have my own Effie for £400!

I have a G scale model that cost me more by the time I had purchased all the castings I wanted and re-motored it.
