I understand the Accucraft model closely resembles Baguley-Drewry 0-6-0 DH 3662, built in 1970 for CSR’s Lautoka Mill in Fiji and fitted with a 280hp GM 8V-71 engine. It was sent from Lautoka to Labasa Mill on Vanua Levu but suffered from broken axles and was withdrawn. I saw in it 2008, dumped in Labasa yard without an engine.

Thanks for your reply. The closest I can find is the Woodford Baugley. I was
there in March and quite impressed with it. So much so that I managed to find an
Accucraft model going spare. I had thought of looking at it in 7 1/4" gauge as a
model. Details I have found are as follows;
Wheel Arrangement: 0-6-0DM
• Built by EE Baguley Ltd, Burton-on-Trent, UK, for Railway,
Mine and Plantation Equipment Ltd, UK
• Build #: 3377 of 1953
• Horse Power: fitted with a 6LW Gardner Diesel Motor
Would love any additional details like a line drawing for a starter.
