As I understand it, the powered bogie-thingie is based on equipment from the former Royal Mail Post Office Railway under London.
The Launceston Railway ( is building a diesel electric railcar. Please visit:
Hope this helps?

Dear all,
I have uploaded another collection of photographs to Flickr showing the recent history of the FR.
The images are from May 2010 and show the Quirks & Curiosities gala, Lyd's first fire, the C2, vertical boilered locos, Britomart, a Landrover, a Model A Ford and even a lifeboat etc.

Very interesting. But what is that strange machine that appears in photos 105, 1378, 1482 & 1525? It appears to be some sort of power bogie with cables attached and is hauling an open bogie wagon with a lot of people in it.
