City of Truro

Post by Mountaineer » Fri Nov 17, 2017 9:13 am

Have a complete set of Kennion's drawings for 5" gauge City of Truro. I understand Kennion's is long out of business. Did another company pick up the patterns and offer castings for the engine?

Interesting, and thanks. Not sure why that didn't show up in my Google searches?

Doubt I'll have the time to build this engine, given all my other projects, but is a pretty engine!

Just took a look around GLR Kennion's site. They have a fascinating animation of the GWR King valve gear in the 5" gauge Keith Wilson King page.
