Cyril Diesel 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.

Happened to find a picture of this little loco, an ex 2 footer, regauged to 15 Inch gauge. http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/Cyril

Where can I find more information. Such as dimensions and views of the other sides. Maybe even a plan.

Have Fun

Juergen,

Since Cyril is on a standard Lister chassis (so 6' x 3') that should hive you a goodish start on dimensions/obtaining a chassis/running gear drawing - e.g. see Jeremy Tilston's excellent drawings. You can get that from here:

There's another photo of Cyril here:
