Hi Everyone,

I need a little help with some research I'm doing. We have a 0-6-0 5g 'Pioneer' that was designed in 1932 by ND Willoughby. There was a 'marketing article' describing the loco in ME Vol 66 pg 449, and some comments in Vol 67 pg 47 which I have dug up from our library. Has anybody got drawings for this loco or information on the designer? Or possibly any other information of interest?

Thanks,

Luker.

Thanks Jason, I've made a note and I'll have a look next time I'm in our library...

I found this article in our library this afternoon. Lovely 6 pager on one of the Pioneers built by a Mr Goves which won an award at the ME exhibition in 1936. Thanks for the reference, much appreciated!

One of our younger members put together the following video of Pioneer... Think it turned out a great video!
