'Baby Saint' class 0-4-0ts

Created by: Chris

Creation type: Scratchbuild

History: The first class of locos built by the newly formed North Pendington locomotive works. They were an asthetically pleasing design (many consider their 'best side' to be a view from just off to one side of the front) and very sturdily engineered. They were exceptionally powerful for their size, and reasonably economical. As such, almost every railway on the Isle of Rhom (Chris: "This is the island on which all my railways are set - it's just off the north-west coast of Wales") had at least one tucked away somewhere. Being a relatively small company, the North Pendington Locomotive Works Inc. fell on hard times in the depression after WW2. They were eventually sold to Nightingale and Hughes Co. but continued to operate under their own name until 1957.

Summary: A class of small inside-frame 0-4-0 side tank locos with custom cabviews and bogeys.

Included in pack: Blue, Green, Maroon, Black, Black (with red lining), VoGR Black and  VoGR orange.

PGm&FT No. 7 'Fardell' 0-6-0t

Created by: Chris

Creation type: Modification

History: This is mainline loco number 7 of the Port Gog-madoc and Ffestangog Tramway Co. It was built in 1935 by Hunslet and Co. of Leeds, along with twin engine No. 8 'Heather' for lighter trains and shunting work. They were rough but basically stable runners, and proved able of a good turn of speed. They are part of Hunslet's 0-6-0 General class loco, with two versions of the type made, the basic (See 'Dylan') an the more advanced passenger version.

Summary: An outside-frame 0-6-0t in a single livery with custom cabview.

'Evie' class 0-4-4Ts

Created by: Chris

Creation type: Scratchbuild/reskin

History: In mid-1918, the VoGR approached Manning Wardle & Co. with a request for a new loco to replace their aging Hunslet Ferry class locos (coming soon). The new loco had to be light, able to pull a 190 ton train up a 3.5% grade unassisted and had to be easy to maintain. The result was the 'Evie' class. The prototype loco was delivered to the railway on the 15th of June, 1919. Extensive trials proved the loco to be a sturdy, powerful and efficient little runner. The VoGR's management was so pleased with it that as soon as 'Evie' had been taken into regular service, two more were ordered, 'Floyd' and 'Gwen'. These were delivered in 1921, along with a third, 'Holly', delivered in 1922. All lasted into the mid-50s, but soon after 'Floyd' started leaking steam badly, and the line (which's profits had begun to decline in the 40s) did not have enough money to repair it. It was scrapped in 1957. 'Evie' was taken into the works in 1958 with aims to repair it, but it ended up as a parts donor to 'Gwen'. 'Gwen' was sold to a preservation group in 1961. In 1996, the remains of 'Evie' were found, and a long-term project was created to restore it to working order, completed in 2008. No-body knows the final destiny of 'Holly', but it is suspected she was sent to South Africa, and is still there today. During the lifespan of these locos, five more were built for other railways, including a modified version to America, and proved their worth pretty much anywhere they went. 'Arthur' is a typical example of these locos (more to follow).
A modern replica was finished in 2004, and works alongside it's 70-year-old cousin 'Arthur' on the Llyn Beckett and Llangwen Railway. There are many minor differences between the pair, but you have to look hard.

Just months before the line closes, 'Gwen' hauls what would have been considered a light train before the war through the countryside towards Gochwyn Town. Note the use of Evie's right-hand cylinder.

All these locos have their own semi-detailed custom cabviews.

I hope you enjoy these locos, there will be more!

Feldbahn 0-6-2t 'Jerry'

Created by: Chris

Creation type: Scratchbuild

History: 'Jerry' was built in early 1918, towards the end of the First Word War. She was a one-off, built to see if a smaller loco could still be just as powerful as the 0-8-0t Feldbahn locos that had been mass-produced for the 1st world war. She was smaller and lighter, and only had six drivers, but with the incorporation of many modern fittings and experimental parts she proved just as powerful and easy to maintain in the field, and of course a lighter axle loading reduced stresses on the track. One of the main visible improvements was the fitting of a modified Wascherts valve gear set. Toward the end of the war, she was captured by allied troops and brought here to the UK, where she was used for many various purposes, ranging from high-end passenger duties of the FR and VoFR to quarry work and road building. She often served alongside the very locos she used to be helping to fight against! The name 'Jerry' was adopted due to the English slang term for a German at that time. It stuck, and in 1938, just weeks before the Second World War broke out, distinctive red nameplates were cast for her. She was sent for scrap in 1953. In 1982, a preservation society bought her remains with an aim to restore and preserve this unique loco, and she was finished in 1990. She is based at the Rheilfford Llyn Taly-wyn, in North Wales, and visits many public events nowadays.

Summary: A German WD style 0-6-2t
