Last Saturday I was handed this: It's of around 7mm scale and in the photo is standing on Peco HO track. But what is it? That I didn't know. Jacky Molinaro came to the rescue with some prototype information: Petolat, built 1930, a 'test' production run of one, retired from work in the 1950s. Jacky also supplied this in service photo:
But what is the kit and who made it? It's nominally 7mm scale or Oe and of etched brass construction.
My thanks to the above gentleman for his help.

Tracklaying on Rhiw

Track on the centre board done. Straightforward, but lots of fiddling with copperclad strip. Worth remembering that from the expected viewing angle most of this will be invisable.
