A quick answer
Loco was 6'6 1/2 " wide and 15' 8" long over skirts but not buffers
divided front o/hang 4' 2" - coupled wheel base 4' 3" - to pony wheel
rear o/hang 2'3"
Driving wheels 2'6" and trailing wheel 1'9" (yes I know it's strictly
leading wheel but that's how it's described on plan)
BTW just to complicate things it's an outside framed chassis that
under the skirts
The 16mmngm egroup on Yahoo have a scan of a 1967 MRN article in
section with 4 pages of drawings including one of the boiler and
chassis - I
don't think there would be any objection to me passing them on but
about 325kb per page

This group is:
1 - for people interested in modelling narrow gauge railways in 7mm:1ft
scale or thereabouts
2 - not restricted to members of the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association although
membership of said organisation is thoroughly recommended
3 - moderated by current serving members of the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association

- Look a bit further down the sales list, just past Ratio for some odd
reason, and you'll find Branchlines and a listing for the chassis BL3
Measuring the body up, its 110mm long. I can't lay my hands on Milner's
book to tell you whether that's accurate. My chassi is an 0-6-0 so i
can't tell you anything about the Branchline wheels.
