>Cue Noggin the Nog music, or possibly Ivor the Engine>

Let us imagine for the moment, that after WWI, in search of markets new, the Cie Decauville had ventured out into the wilds of North Wales and had opened up a little subsidiary to serve the numerous narrow gauge lines still in existence. The weather being more inclement than where they came from, they were forced to consider new designs, including, if you can believe this, enclosed cabs .... I think it might be worth a go

That's a nice little Loco. Is it self made? Do you have some more pics of it?

I bought it second-hand from H.D. Clemens (you can Google his site). I added a reverser lever and a pressure gauge to it and gave it a 50000km service.

This is the only other close-up pic Ive got on my "kandnwlr" Flickr account.
