It's not one of the Colonel's but shares a lot of the characteristics. Ross Shimmon

A fine model of K&ESR No. 6
This steam railcar car "ran" on the Kent & East Sussex Railway. It was delivered to this "Colonel Stephens" Railway in 1905, being built by Messrs. Pickering. It was basically a 4 wheel fixed frame vehicle, powered by a vertical boiler. The length over buffers was 30ft with a wheelbase of 17ft. It sported various numbers during it's existence; No 16 as part of coaching stock and No 6 as engine stock. [link to kit]
It may look a strange wagon but it is in the best Colonel Stephens tradition.
The wagon which has been built from the frame up will house a display of Colonel Stephens memorabilia.
So next time you are in the SW, why not call in at Bere Ferrers and take a look.
The Colonel Stephens Society has contributed to the cost of refurbishing and insulating the van.
If you look carefully, 'S&MR' can be seen on one of the green panels. The slide was taken 26th July 1970.
'Bought for preservation by Mr Keyse, a Birmingham solicitor, it was wrecked by gypsies.'
