A Lister Transmogrification - 'Toby' to 'Ted'

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

A Lister Transmogrification - 'Toby' to 'Ted'

Postby Colin Peake » Sat Aug 10, 2013 9:17 pm

The Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway's Lister has been out of service for some time undergoing a protracted overhaul. At an early stage the decision was taken to remove the rotten, wooden 'Toby' GE tram outline body and replace it with a diesel-outline one. There has been a degree of chopping and changing of the new body during the build and the result is a twin-bonneted Lister! There is a fair amount of work to be completed, the chaps in the workshop were about to fit the cab roof whilst I was there:

Having had a sit in the cab it is certainly roomy, it will have rubber-grommeted windows and a sliding door on the far side. The tram style side skirts and cowcatchers will be refitted for a unique appearance!

The locomotive will be named 'Ted' once completed as a tribute to George Edward (Ted) Shaw, the owner's late father.
