    Dunno if the following is of interest to anyone?

    The Moseley Railway Trust is seeking to dispose of Ruhrthaler 3909/69 on behalf of the loco's owners. This locomotive is nominally 2'6" gauge. It is a 4w diesel hydraulic, and is currently on-site at Apedale. It weighs approx. 12 tons. It is believed to be operational, although no specific guarantees or warranties are made - the loco will be sold as-is, where-is.

    Interested parties please contact Simon Lomax on planethalo@btinternet.com

    Are there any photos available on-line ?

    How straightforward would it be to re-gauge to 2' ?
