|Though Katie was my second
scratcbuilt steamer started she was the first one I finished
as I was "having issues" with getting the boiler to

and I was pretty well correct. The relative ease of construction
made me keener to go back and finish Effie. The donor chassis
for this loco was another Hornby "Thomas the Tank Engine"
range loco "Ben"
