It's hideously ugly really, but therein lies part of its trainy beauty. Might try a scratch build over the winter. It must've been difficult to drive- the vision dosen't look great.

 

Vision isn't great in a steamer anyway!

But,strangely it does have a weird attraction to it..

It's a mixture of nostalgia, uniqueness and the fact that it looks in a desperate state

Also that it would be really fun to build

I think that was the one where under certain firebox conditions with the milled peat, a mini explosion could occur.

 

Its regular crew in time could engineer these minor bangs to get rid of unwanted footplate guests.

Neil Sprinks books on the Sligo contain several photos. Likewise both Tom Ferris colour albums.

Alphagraphix do a card kit of railbus 2a in 7mm scale for just £3-4. I scratch built mine using it as a drawing. See David's workbench and earlier Arigna Town reports in the workbench and layout sections.
