After recently watching a dvd on industrial railways around Britain It would be interesting to know if any amateur cine film was ever shot of the Nabisco's shunter doing a bit of shunting at the Shredded Wheat factory back in the 1960s or 1970s?. It is possible that someone somewhere mite have shot a few minutes of cine film back in the 1960s or 1970s and if so maybe they could send it to Transport Video Publishing of Wheathampstead just a few miles away from Welwyn Garden City and they would probably include the film footage in one of there railway titles at some point in the future.

We would love to find some film footage, and thanks for the info on the drivers. The loco is now finished and looks stunning in the sunshine, with its copper capped chimney (this housed the exhaust silencer on the original) and the lovely straw lining. It is going to be moved sometime after the late may bank holiday to the Middy, so that I can carry out some running trials on the track, then have it ready for a press release day, before the diesel day on the 30th June. It really is a pretty little loco.
