    Scottish Model Engineering Trust (SMET) has a revamped website: www.smet.org.uk

    The 5" track at Wester Pickston has now been extended around the new extension and the carriage shed is now complete. Looking good for 2015!

    Hi Andrew - sorry for the delay in responding. Not too sure about that one. It is a visiting loco, I think from Strathaven. If I can find out more, I will post away.
