LR 190 queries

Apologies for at least two typographic mistakes, Chris.



A couple of queries about info in the latest LR magazine, #190.



On page 26 there is a heading for Ron Leonard, but I'm sure it was Rod
Leonard in previous issues. Anyone know which is right?



This is an error. It should be Rod Leonard



Also in the same section it lists Ron/Rod as having Planet #3570 of 1952. I
have it listed as #3540 of 1952. Again, anyone know which is correct?



It should be 3540.



On page 27 in the Alexandra section it mentions a Kelly & Lewis loco named
Flora. Is this a different Flora to the one used at Captain Cook Dock in
Sydney which was a Caldwell according to the article in LR not too long ago?



It appears that the loco was supplied by Caldwell Engineering. It has been
claimed that Kelly & Lewis built it for Felix Caldwell on the basis of a
photo that appears to show such a loco, new, at Kelly & Lewis' factory.

And just to add further confusion, the power unit (motor and radiator) were supplied by John Fowler.
At least one photo of the loco at Kelly & Lewis shows the Fowler name on the radiator
