I've seen them.. do you want to carry it?

I remember those "Kenversions" bodies, they slotted over the old Mamod steam locos.

Michael Seymour, long-time FR Archivist and member from the earliest days ( he was the guard on the first "train" of the preserved era and can be seen in one of the photos in "Little Wonder" ) was a master at my school and used to bring items of that nature in to school from time to time.

It makes you proud to be British!
No other country can produce such a fine display of anoraks, oddballs and weirdos as us!
Combining two such interests as mine exploration and model railway is a masterpiece.

no actual mine content as such, but I think this one takes a bit of beating...

did you see the repro "Spooner's Boat" at the FR?
