If this is a genuine slimming down of Collection 'X', it would not surprise me if they get a lot of interest from mainland Europe, given the...
I think you are right, again in a container, I am led to believe.
Hopefully I will see it when I go there next year when Falcon is working!
I think they are in containers on an Industrial Estate in Leek, Staffordshire.
Likewise, I am intrigued about their current status.
From what I have been told, the faults don't entirely lie with the manufacturer!
(Read into that, what you may!)
What about one of those Nepalese Garratts, that seem to have been abandoned?
Whilst you might have ended up with a very efficient steam loco if it was in the hands of the very capable Girdlestone and Porta, I don't think it...
I asked this question about the loco on this forum and was told that the frame of Yeo had been scrapped.

Unfortunately I never visited, but fascinated by the boiler off the 18" gauge loco, I hope it survived the cull?
Likewise putting different makers of NGG16s would make for another great 'spot the difference' contest!
From WHR experience, I don't think it was ever in doubt that NG60 would have any problem on the VoR with that loading.
By highlighting it, you may have inadvertently pushed up the value!
Now I have gone and done the same thing as well
I think there is a line drawing of it in David Lloyd Jones's book, 'An Introduction Of Modelling The Isle Of Man Steam Railways'
Have the wheels of NG60 now got the same 'back to back' dimensions as the other VoR locos? As it would be nice for it be a guest on the WHR one...
Well we are now back up to 5 of the IOMR in England, albeit temporarily!
Long term though, probably just Nos. 3 & 7 will remain.
Sorry, silly me, I should have known about Rocket!
Surely that only applies to i.c. locos and the few steam locos where the centre line of the cylinder is in line with the centre of the driven...
It is presumed to be part of Collection 'X'.
Surely the 'quartering' would be out if you turned a 'cranked' wheelset by 180 degrees?
