Bullet-In # 50

Issued:  April - June 2004


Front cover: Toby Railway's Beyeer Peacock loco of 1897 (report p. 42) Two, which continued to serve Tobu until the late 1950s, have been preserved: No.5, at Tobu's museum where it is 'driven' for 5 minutes every 2nd hour on a 'rolling road', the sounds of 'steam' replaced by compressed air as the loco pistons reciprocate. No. 6 is placed under a nearby Tobu overbridge, surrounded by a heavy security fence. How nice if it could be rescued!
