An interesting and colourfull site.
The Baldwin and the Sandy River caboose give it a Maine flair and the whistle sound is  sweet.

Here's a more recent video of Brecon Mountain no. 2 at work, with some Stephen Hussar-style camera work.

Love the engine, but that caboose is surely not an Brit Brake Van (LOL).  Would be at home on any Maine Two-footer.  Must be more than a couple S.R. & R.L. fans on the other side of the pond.

The neat thing about this little Pacific is she's actually an old friend of Maine Two Foot Fans. If you happen to have a Pre-Jones edition of Maine Two Footers and look in the back under "Two Footers from other parts of the World", her Baldwin builder's photo is there.

When I saw these pictures in the mid 70s as a teenager I wouldn't ever have guessed this engine would still be around then, never mind today.

She's a pretty substantial little engine, actually quite a bit bigger than SR&RL #23. I have a feeling she would have been way more engine than our own two footers could ever find useful.
