General Discussion / Re: Cripple creek Bagnal 0-4-4-0T
« on: August 03, 2008, 01:03:09 PM »
I read about the meter gauge Bagnall in England and read the history about the loco. I am interested in why a marine type boiler (round firebox) does not steam as good as a "loco" type boiler with a box type firebox. The report said that if they converted it to burn oil it would steam better and that hand firing the Bagnall was difficult on coal.
Do you know where there are some good drawings for the Bagnall-Meyer 0-4-4-0T?
I am really interested in the boiler and how it was built.

Is this locomotive operational? This would be a great loco to restore as Bagnal's are rare anymore.
