Yes, the O4 is 0-6-0 and had skirts fitted to work the Wisbech & Upwell tramway (ex-GER) in the early 1950's, when the J70 and Y6 steam locos were withdrawn from the line. The passenger service was withdrawn in 1929 but the line continued to cater for goods (in particular the heavy seasonal fruit and veg traffic) until closure in 1966.

My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.

Confirming that Phil Edwards at Ince Loco Works, Wigan is now taking orders for the production version of his G3 motorised chassis, developed taking into account G3 forum feedback in respect of the prototype.

The chassis also features in the May edition of "Garden Rail" Magazine on page 32 in the "New Products" section. But note the new specification (rest as per the prototype):-

200mm overall length -  wheelbase 100mm - 50mm diameter wheels.

The basic price ready-to-run remains at £80 plus postage and VAT.

Optional are a protective steel undertray, steel end and top plates and a bogie fitting central bracket.

To order or for enquiries contact Phil :-  incelocoworks@gmail.com

Happy Easter.
