I used to belong to a club which had two members who had built Ajax locos. One was named Ajax the other unnamed, one day the owner of the unnamed one returned to his locomotive to find neatly made nameplates stuck on it - Vim!

Perhaps you need to be of a certain age to get this.

Someone with an abrasive wit.

Hi Greg

Just seen this thread 3 years later! I wonder if you ever built your Ajax.

Stephen Wessel

Hi Stephen,

No unfortunately the Ajax never got built. I think it would have been a great loco, but the casting were a bit too expensive for me. The Reeves price for the cylinders with postage to Aus was quite a bit and they were the only suppliers

I'm still finishing my 3 1/2" Jubillee (Stannier Tank)
