  7. ragl liked W.Williams's post in the thread P2 Locomotive Company and related matters.

  12. ragl liked GWR4707's post in the thread Whillan Beck (The Train from Spain) - RERPS.

    No idea, I have a very vague recollection of reading somewhere that they were fitted to make her look like a Duchess, but please don't quote me on that it may be my imagination. Obviously if they are needed they should be used, but entirely...
