In fact there are two types: the 4-4-0 with coal tender and the 0-4-0 Tank Engine. They look vaguely British/Continental to me I have to say but at £5.99 a box I thought them worth a punt.
As you can see they make up a decent sized train for our games and, as I'm not too fussy either, over a wide range of periods I think. The train and carriages are slightly wider than the 00 gauge flexitrack I have, but I don't mind that; they don't have to run anywhere on their own after all. I'll leave that to the layout in the loft, at least for now. The figures you can see are Pulp Figures 28mm. A couple of closer shots ~

Now, many of you in my situation might be tempted into all sorts of repainting and kit bashing, but not me. Why, you ask? Well, I no longer take games to shows, as I said recently, and this will do for me just fine as it is, although the track will be based on MDF when Phil has a mo! I see it featuring in games in the 1940's Operation Zeelowe/Blandings setting,the VBCW in Wolverhampton and S Staffs, in Holmes games, in the Old West, since I'm not that fussy, and even in Rhanzlistan and points East! Purists will have a seizure, but,' its my game' as they say. Total cost? £17.99! Available in three colour schemes: green, red and blue to suit all tastes. Additional benefit: there's a spare engine for my grandsons to play with on the floor ~ they come with light and sound effects you see. "Quickly now, Watson! If we hurry we can make the 4.55 slow service to Blandings Parva!"
