I looked at this three times and the penny only dropped when I read the label! This is a narrow gauge steam locomotive by Sentinel of Shrewsbury and is appropriately named 'Nutty'. It is works No. 7701 of 1929. The boiler is a vertical in the cab and the engine is a horizontal twin cylinder enclosed with poppet valves and drives via chain. It was 2' 11" but is now 2' 6" gauge and weighs 6 tons. It is capable of 18 MPH and hauling 30-35 tons on gradients up to 1:30. It was used at London Bricks Co, Fletton and is on loan from the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum at Tywyn. It is the only survivor of its class (Special SIL).
