Penrhyn quarry "tractors"

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.

Penrhyn quarry "tractors"

Postby Narrow gauge Nutter » Sat Feb 08, 2014 5:30 pm

Good evening everyone. I have seen this pic on an ebay listing

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371000138748? ... 1438.l2649

Penrhyn Petrol loco number 1

I am trying to find more pics/drawings of this critter.
I know further pics appear in 16mm Assoc Penrhyn modelling book, and Slate Quarries of Gwynned - as per NGRM forum - neither of which do I have :?

I now know there were several of these "tractors" and they were built and re-built by the quarry themselves, from bought in chassis and Morris cars :D

Can anyone help?

Thanks
David H-G, the Narrow gauge Nutter

Lost in France and loving it!
