The model of Neill took a bit of doing – it started out with a flat cap which took a bit of carving off. The pony tail is made from solder and took ages but it does look like Neill which entertained his grandchildren.

The loss of carrying capacity is the reason for the lightweight petrol Lister – moving the other Listers now means hiring a truck while the petrol one should be OK on the trailer (with luck)
Does anyone know if the Greenbat had a light on it at Chemical and Insulated? Neill inherited one from Terry Stanhope and we’re wondering if it came off the Greenbat – knowing Terry anything’s possible....

We think Terry Stanhope beat you to it and got the lamp before you got the loco.
Either way we had it out on Sunday for a run up and down the line. I have very little time these days but it was good to get the stock out - if anyone wants to visit please call Neill on 01765 690906 and we will show you round.
The lightweight Lister now has wooden center ballast weights fitted complete with fibreglass resin letters - from 10 feet away they almost look the part....
