I've been asking friends and visitors what they would like to see made next from the Sodor OO Works, and in the Railway Series category, i noticed someone said about giving Neil a try.
This little box tank, though not much is known about him, is a perfect little character who i think would make a great addition to the Sodor fleet, thought he worked for the Sodor & Mainland Railway (S&M), he was one of three locomotives to only be seen in the book 'Very Old Engines'. Nothing is really known about the other two either, however, one could say they were brothers.
Though the model might not look like much in the diagram, it would be an ideal little engine for shunting duties, so it is highly likely that Neil, will soon be under way.
A suitable donor chassis, would be either a Hornby 0-4-0 'Percy' or a 'Pug'.
