photoblog image SRAGI No. 1

SRAGI No. 1


An ex Indonesian German-built narrow gauge locomotive (Krauss 4045 of 1899), now named SRAGI No 1 appears on the West Lancashire Light Railway in it's new paint finish, highly polished and looking very efficient as it rattled about the sidings.

wonderful, it reminds me my first H0 model locomotive, a Marklin model
Les Auld: I know just what you mean Paolo, I also remember the Marklin models, they seemed so exotic when I was younger. Thanks for the comment.
Its a great little engine and they have done a great job!
Les Auld: Indeed so Linda, thanks for the comment.
A charming little puffer Les..and what a lovely job they have made of it. Good one.
Les Auld: It is so Ron, and works well also. Thanks for the comment.
Delightful engine. They have done a great restoration job by the look of it
Les Auld: They have indeed Bill, thanks for the comment.
This is a great loco Les, how do I know, because I went to the Statfold Barn Private Railway, near Tamworth, in September, and it was there. You will see it on Shutterchance on 8th.March. If you Google the above you will find details of their open days for 2010 and how to obtain an invitation, it really is a good day out.
Les Auld: It certainly looked the part Brian, had a look at the Statfold site and it does look interesting. Thanks for the comment.
that a fun loc! nice timing with the steam coming out! the old wreck behind the tree adds to the nostalgic feeling!
Les Auld: Thanks Maarten, appreciate the comment.
