Graham Farish is purely the surname from memory, but I'm not sure whether it was hyphenated or not. You could try asking Bob Russell ( B R Lines at a o l dot com - but removed all spaces and replace at with the usual). He worked for Farish for a number of years and may be able to point you in the right direction.

Somewhere in my cartons of old MRC mags is an article on Graham Farish, heater manufacturer and their new model railway line of 0-6-0 with tender mounted 2 poole vibrator motor. Unfortunately until the new house and shed are built I have no idea which of the cartons to look in.
