by Gerard Versluys - part one

A short while back Julius de Waal produced some super drawings for the delightful Decauville 0-6-0 (or 030 in France) loco in several gauges from 45mm to 3.5”. These locos are proving to be popular. Frenchman, Gerard Versluys, has completed an excellent example in 2.5” gauge. We have this photographic record of his build showing that they can be built without castings, even the wheels. We hope this will encourage many others.

Part two here.
