Locomotive Facts & Figures
Builder: J. Haylock /T. Woron 1989   No.21 15 Inch Engine0-4-2T
The part built 15” gauge engine was started by Brian Gent of F.M.B. Engineering as a 0-4-0T replica of one of the earliest narrow gauge miniature steam locomotives originally designed and built by the minimum gauge railway pioneer Sir Arthur Heywood. Four replicas of Katie were started but Jim Haylock acquired one of the chassis in exchange for three ex-Jaywick Sands Railway coaches. One of Sir Arthur’s principals was that a stoat mackintosh was superior to an enclosed cab but Jim has decided to add a cab to protect the engine crew from inclement weather. This modification required the provision of a two-wheel rear pony truck. A new boiler was commissioned and patterns were made to allow new cylinders to be cast.
