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'
