The Danny Locomotive has returned from painting by Roger Neale who also paints for Alan Keef so if its good enough for them it is good enough for Littledean Hill Garden Railway. I am awaiting the brass name and number plates. It will be named WJSA in memory of my father. The loco is now fitted with Playmobil Couplings which although not authentic, they are very reliable no matter how rough the track or how tight the bends. The three link couplings were a pain as they were a fiddle to connect and the buffer linked on tight bends and caused derailments. The only essential with Playmobil couplings is to ensure they are the same height. This can be thrown out if you change the wheels to smaller diameter.
