A Pair of 0-6-0s
The second is a Collet Goods, made from a Gem kit, this has been cut along the centre reduced in width (for a Tri-ang TT mechanism) by Nigel Cullimore. A Brynkits chassis is fitted with Romford wheels, Mashima 9/16 motor and Branchlines gearbox. Both have run on 'Hennock' but are too long for a normal length train due to fiddleyard restrictions. Both need smokebox numbers, these I will make from pressfix numbering.
The Dean Goods is going to be subject to Modellers Licence, most were gone by the early Fifties and few appeared in Devon as far as I am aware. . However Bob Brown has given me a couple of possibles seen in the South West.Further examples would be welcome-please let em know.
