I'm working on some ideas for The G3 Newsletter and one will deal with notable G3 locomotives and rolling stock that seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth.

My first subject is 'The locomotives of Freddie Wrighton' – the late model engineer known mainly for his superb G1 locomotives. If any reader knows anything about this topic or has any photographs could they please let me know.

Many tx



This Freddie Wrighton built loco turned up for sale at the Ampthill GTG last Saturday. It's an LNWR Alfred the Great class - 'Victoria & Albert'. Used to belong to the late Mike May and is now for sale at £2,400. The loco is coal fired, two outisde cylinders and has Stephensons valve gear (so I'm told) controlled by a very nice lever reverser.

Well worth considering I would have thought by anyone seeking a loco to run at GTGs



Does anyone on this Forum happen to know whatever became of this Freddie Wrighton locomotive?
