And here is one I missed earlier ...

After writing the blog entry about the amount of HOe-gauge locomotive and rolling stock that I own, I suddenly remembered that I also own a single OO-gauge locomotive.

It is an 0-4-0 Saddle Tank locomotive. The original locomotive was one of a series built between 1891 and 1910 by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company. They were designed by Sir J A F Aspinall, and because of their small size, they were nicknamed 'Pugs'.

This model was made by Dapol Model Railways Limited, and the bodywork was based on the Airfix model of the 'Pug' (which had been made originally by Kitmaster), the moulds for which Dapol bought some years ago. Because of its small size, it is ideally suited for use in a wargames setting.
