    'Otter', a 2' gauge copy of a Bagnall Sipat has been finished for its new owner today. It will be trialed in the next few weeks before delivery.

    At present the owner does not want to be identified so please do not ask.

    The next new build, a replica of the Southwold 3' gauge locomotive 'Blyth' is underway with its boiler due to be finished in April. Another new build is in advanced state of discussion for a 2022 finish assuming funding is achieved.

    If we can be of assistance with a new build for your project, please email david@nbr.org.uk .

    She is very nice indeed - hope to see her in the flesh some day soon.

    Surprised Southwold are pressing head with Blyth so quickly

    Thanks.

    A press release will be issued in the next few days and all will be revealed.

    Otter is the Twin to Georgina at North Bay. Frames cut and delivered on the same day in July 2013. Different gauges 20/24” and finished 3 years apart. Bit like a frozen embryo.
