Local Wencombe haulier Frank Drake was well into taking photos in the late 50's and early 60's and luckily I have come into possession of them. This one is Burmington Grange waiting for the token to continue to Dartmouth and all points East.

Decided to close(r) couple a 2 of my locos, the Manor and a mogul, by chopping off the original lug and replacing with a brass pin.

A simple task that has made a big difference.

Hi Alan


I bet the drivers are happy with this closer coupling.....it must have been a wee bit embarrassing when they kept losing the firemen down the crevasse between the loco and tender. :)

Not only embarrassing but they then had to do the firing themselves :)

At long last I've got round to putting more appropriate transfers on my Bristol LS bus

Ideally I would have liked it to be the smaller Bristol SU but I don't think anyone does one either as a die-cast or resin kit.

You are correct it is an EFE model, which I believe was released in 1994, hence it took me several years to track one down.
