the lower one yes! you can see the name of the owner in the left hand corner, Richard Farmer, he posted a thing on here a while ago about building it.

I think there two different locos here. there are some things in the photo that are not the same as the one at the club,I think there where a few of this type of 1"loco built as the casting I would think came from LE

the one that the club has one boiler check valve on the left front of the boiler and none on the right side,the one in the photo has two on the right front of the boiler.the injector plumbing is lade out different.the cab sides and roof look different.the hand rail on the front look not the same.the guides on the valve slides look to be made in a different shape,maybe Phil can print out a copy of the photo and we can compare the two as I'm 70% sure there not the same loco

hummmm??? I wonder.. I guess their were two Reading LE camel backs built. I tried to contact Richard Farmer but maybe he mistakened our loco for his old one?
