Ruston and Hornsby 16/20hp
Narrow gauge locomotive.
About this creation
Ths is my MOC of a Ruston and Hornsby 16/20hp from the collection at Amberley Working Museum (otherwise known as Amberley Chalk Pits where the quarry scenes from the James Bond film 'A View To A Kill' were filmed). The original locomotive is a two foot gauge type built in 1938 that worked, I believe, in a sewage works for most of it's operational life.

I have made it in Sand Green as that is close enough to the real loco's colour but also because I had several of the bricks with curved tops in that colour which are needed for the tanks. It has two coupling methods: On the front is a hook, my original coupling method (which used technic liftarm bars to link) and on the back is the standard magnetic coupling which was retrofitted when sufficient 'plates 3x2 with hole' became available as the mounting.
