    An early representation of the Greenly manorial coat-of-arms. The book includes some drawings and a particularly useful Greenlys model steam locomotives book of "Typical steam engine proportions" which can be used to make a 'home designed' engine look right. Some of these designs are complete and detailed down to the last item, others are more vague and rely on the builder being able to make components off a general layout or from one of the standard parts drawings. Enquiry among the oldest officers and servants leads me to the conclusion that there were at least two engines with ten-foot driving wheels. It is worth noting that none of Rudy's designs use castings and much of his machining is done on a small lathe. This book covers lots of stirling engine designs, some history of these inventions and many examples of Roy's work.

However, amidst the numerous claims that were made it is strange that so little substantial evidence of early locomotive construction seemed to be forthcoming.

There are still a few old engineers who have actually seen, and in all probability been connected with, the early locomotives, and as much as possible should be got from these old and original sources. Can Mr Sheward throw any further light on the subject of the Ajax and its wheels?

Types and Designs OCS This book describes full scale boilers rather than models but is still useful as a source of ideas for different boiler designs and construction methods.

Above is in Romsey, Hampshire and named after the famous railway engineer, Henry Greenly. Sekon continued at length to repudiate statements by Littlejohn and to quote a report made by Wood to the GWR directors in maintaining that the source of Wood's information was unquestionable; indeed it nullifled Littlejohn's statements.

The ten-foot wheel had been abandoned on account of the d fficulty in getting up the speed of trains at starting. Mr Greenly states that he has a drawing of the Ajax of The A1-variant was a much-enlarged eight-wheel version carrying 8 long tons 8. However, unlike the Pennsylvania K4, the firebox was not of the flat-topped Belpaire variety, but a round-topped one that was in line with Great Northern tradition.

Thus, funds were scarce for such frovolity as locomotive-building. Archibald Sturrock was indeed a reliable witness in so far as he recalled having seen these early engines in service. I was thus able to secure "boiler material" almost for free; in fact, a Dentist gave me 2 nitrous oxide tanks!

The GWR officials at Paddington most kindly made an exhaustive search to try to discover any particulars of the Great Western engines ordered by Mr Brunel and also for Mr Gooch's report to the director on these engines, but they were unable to find any documents on the subject, possibly because these papers were probably destroyed when the general offices of the railway were removed from the City to Paddington.
