1500 in photo is not a \'Speedy\' but was built to works drawings by Eric Lowe of Rotherham, South Yorkshire many years ago. I drove it many miles for a number of years hauling up to 20 passengers up our 1 in 100 bank at Blackgates. Eric, now 92, is still building, wearing glasses sometimes, but usually without them and is at present nearing completion of 2-10-0 BR Std \'Evening Star\'. This is in 3.5\" gauge. Most folk go to larger scales when getting a little older, not Eric.
Hope the above may fill a blank ot two for the present owner of \'1500\'.
Sincerely, Tony, former Hon. Secretary of West Riding Small Locomotive Society at Tingley, near Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England.
