Somewhere I have a picture of this beast in derelict condition when dumped at Penlee, as it os of the other side I tried to find it and post it. Doh who knows where it is, I am pretty well organised with my pictures and negs. Sadly not this one.
Possibly early health and safety cab door, if you got out that side you would be in Newlyn harbour !An interesting prototype, not too far removed from one of LGB's fieldbahn locos? Or maybe even a Stainz would make a good base in 7/8ths? I think the method of keeping the cab door closed is pretty ingenious though, I'll keep that in mind for a future build
