      I have a copy of DA Boreham's book, with two drawings in it.

      Would you like scans?

      I've dug out a couple of pictures of these locos and they look like a 'do-able' project, any idea where I might find a drawing? I think Don Boreham built one of these years ago in 16mm scale named 'Strider'

      The original 00 wheels have long since disappeared so I shall have to source new ones, but the chassis is quite well engineered and runs well even without compensation.

      Now, why didn't _I_ think of the Festiniog & Blaenau pair?!! Much closer to 'home' than anything else!

      Geoff is absolutely right, they wouldf make excellent use of a couple of the chassis ans the 4mm scale frames coulds even be retained AND remian a fairly convincing representation of the back ends of the Manning Wardles.
      All you would need would be to add coupling rods and outside cylinders.

I don't want a GVT loco (which is the usual way of hiding dodgy mechanisms!) and we already have two Tallylyn 0-4-2s on nice Branchlines chassis. So what to choose? I believe some of the Irish lines had some small 0-4-2 and 2-4-0s whose suitably 'boxy' superstructures might contain the rather bulky commercial chassis. The IoM locos might be a bit too dainty for the rather solid commercial mech. Setting up outside cylinders etc. should not pose too much of a problem.
