Yes it is true. A five inch loco has arrived at beamish. Sadly I did not get any photos but it does keep you guessing! I shall give you some clues then. It is not steam and is not of British design and was built about eight years ago. Can you guess what it is then? Also there are plans to build some portable track so we can put it down on running weekends and run this loco alongside the passengers train.
I hope to post some photos next weekend of the new driving truck and the mysterious engine.
UPDATE: krokidile new driving truck was tested today and cleared all obstacles on the lineside so work can be started on it.
