News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Good question S4, and a great pic. 

If Kyn was agreeable, I could post the pic on the Traction Talk steam forum of which I am a member. Those folks are pretty good at ID'ing stuff and one of the forum members is the curator of the part of the national collection of steam railway stuff... he usually has a good idea.

I will await Kyn's resposne.

Hi, Kyn. These are great pics. I have a question. I do have doubts as to the fact that anyone can answer it though. In the first pic there is a loco. Has anyone got some details? She looks like a home built but I am not sure. Help...
A day without learning something is a day lost and my brain is hungry. Feed me please.
