7 1/4-inch gauge BRIDGET

This was Ken’s first design, built from 1959-61. He particularly wanted a loco which could be built on a Myford or similar lathe, hence the small wheels. Whilst it is a freelance 0-4-2 tank, it incorporates much of the detail to be found on the 0-6-0 tanks which were in widespread industrial use at the time. The drawings have been available for many years and a large number are known to exist.
