Dear All, I am a volunteer member of a narrow gauge railway museum charity called the Moseley Railway Trust (http://www.mrt.org.uk), who operate the Apedale Valley Light Railway in North Staffordshire, UK My main interest is in the Light Railways (& trench tramways) of WW1. I have been involved with & lead several rolling stock projects and locomotive restorations so far. One of the next projects that I am considering is a "crewe Tractor" - a small locomotive designed for the light trench tramways. It was based upon a Ford Model T chassis & could revert to road use if required. I would be very interested to hear from anyone with a complete chassis that might be suitable for the above please?! Tucket Brothers seem to be the main commercial source of these vehicles in the UK - but I guess there may also be private sales too? At the moment I'm still researching the design & sourcing rail wheels before going too far. I'd appreciate any leads or advice that this forum could provide please? I'd really like to get hold of a simple 2D plan of the vehicle chassis & would really appreciate any leads please. It may be of interest that i'm also the event organiser for the Trust's major "Tracks to the Trenches - 2014" WW1 centenary event where we hope to be able to present a lot of these types of "tractors" & vehicles. The event has its own website here: www.ww1-event.org I look forward to hearing from you all soon. Thanks in advance, Gareth Roberts
