    Hi Mike,

    Nothing to be sorry about. I've done it a couple of times myself [​IMG]. That's a nice picture. Enjoy seeing railroading in off the way places.

    Top Shot.
    The loco looks very British. Do you know if it was imported or of local manufacture under licence?

    Max - Probably has more power than the average BNSF don't you think?

    Ok Guys here's the deal! Its a little Peckett 4-4-0, built in Scotland 2 centuries ago! It had enough tractive effort to deskin a rice pudding twice over!
    It was used on NZ Railways 120 years ago and it is a real attraction up here.
    The photo was taken as one of the illustrations in a kids book I wrote to help raise funds for the preservation society. The book is called 'Gabriel saves the Day"
    and tells the story in rhyme of the loco getting tourists to the boat on time as their bus had broken down!
    It is also used for the local Jazz festival and conferences when it held up by bandits (weird really as we have never had bandits in NZ) and runs every summer.
    Loved your comments!
    I figure 4 of these locos could fit in a NYC Hudson's tender!!!
    Mike
