On this page you can see some of the locos that I am probably best known for!.
My first loco was a Nellie, in an RS24 set. I have to thank my late uncle for it - he bought me a Tri-ang Puff Puff loco for my Christmas present in 1963, I already had one and so, my parents exchanged it for the afore mentioned set. I still have the original Nellie and (re-painted) wagons, but sadly no box!
|The loco that started it all, my 1963 Nellie, a bit worn but still running.||A better condition standard Nellie No. 7.||A very early example with original style lining.|
|A big display of 0-4-0s at TCS show in Biggleswade.||Same show - note the later clockwork sets at the rear.||More from the same show.|
|A 'standard' Connie, No.6.||A 'standard' Polly, No.9.||Green No.27 but with plated version wheels.|
|Original black version with embossed BR logo.||Later version with transfer version of BR logo.||Cheap version for sets without logo.|
|Later 7178 version with gold lining and plated wheels.||7178 again but with yellow lining and non plated wheels.||An Australian finished Nellie - note the different lining and style of 6.|
|25550 with small dome and non plated wheels.||Another 25550 with silver dome and plated wheels.||Proof that the dome was removed and repositioned after the chrome domed version was made!|
|Connie in blue, she was advertised in blue and yellow.||Factory error of No.9 on blue Nellie. I also have one with original namplates.||Later blue loco, incorrectly named Polly that appears to be factory fitted.|
|Another error, No.6 named Nellie.||Another incorrect No.6, this time red and Polly!||6 Wheeled! I found this one with a Mainline class 03 chassis - its a very good fit.|
|This was the end of Nellie - she became a push along toy for a few years. Note the missing detail.||A few of the push along versions.||Wild West version of the Top Tank loco.|
