    Hi does anyone know if there are any actual manufacturing drawings for Kerr Stuart narrow gauge locomotives in existence? Particularly the Skylark class.
    I don't mean general arrangement drawings and I do know that two locos exist that are not in the UK.

    Thanks
    Graham

    Worth trying the Hunslet Archive at Statfold Barn possibly. They are very helpful in checking and identifying what exists but remember that they charge (reasonable) fees for copies.

    information@statfoldbarnrailway.co.uk

    Mark it for the attention of Henry Noon.

    An enquiry will get passed through internally to the archivist. They hold most of the drawing registers for those companies that were eventually absorbed by Hunslet and once individual drawings are identified can then check to see if they still physically exist.
