I bought a "rolling chassis" for a live steam loco off ebay, (See:
In fact it isn't, its a 5" (which is a bonus) and came with 6 naff blueprints, and 6 buitifully drawn (in pencil) drawings at A2 size on tracing paper with lots of smaller drawings of all the parts, again all originals.
The only "name" type peice if information is that most of the main drawings are "signed" s.F.h. (All caps, but the S and H are the same size as each other but smaller than the F) the drawings show an engine that looks a dead ringer for Tich except that it is 5" and has nicer valve gear, and the lubricator is mounted above the frame, infront of the tanks, as opposed to between the frames.
So does any one have any idea of who S.F.H is or was or any other clues about this engine?
Also I understand if I want to pull people with it I will have to add balast. How do I work out how heavy the loco needs to be to pull things?
