That's to make it easy for Norfolkies who have trouble counting higher >:)
You're too kind - reminds me of working for a small provincial building company when someone pointed out that, of the vans parked in the car park, there were nos 11, 12 & 21 leading him to suggest that we had bought a cheap supply of numbers, only getting 1s and 2s :emo::emo::emo::emo:

You could couple two of them, back-to-back, and swear-blind it was a double - kraus, and number 11!

Six of the Krauss loco variant were actually produced in the late 1890s but I have 3 of each (one is in the wardrobe upstairs). There is an original “growler” at the back so it is 53 years old.

Sunny Easter weekend for running a train or three. The Bobo is out of sight in this shot.

And for my latest trick the Roncali circus train becomes a Clean Machine plus reliveried stock for the Linz Gstadt Bahn.
The whole set including a circle of brass track is less than the cost of single loco clean machine.

Just in the process of installing the Piko 35040 rc in this Stainz. The battery box will go in the cab where the back head was. I will cut a hole in the inner cab roof to take the battery box in and out with a detachable outer cab roof.

You must be getting very good at taking stainz appart. the number you seem to have acquired. :)
I am.
I once chipped a Stainz in 12 minutes flat for a friend at the North West G Scale Society meeting.

Anyway, this Stainz will have a removable roof - I don't have the charging jack point or three way switch in my spares boxes atm
This Stainz is also battery powered with a pack in the cab - it does have a charging jack and 3 way switch
