Looking for drawings of a Württemberg Tssd narrow-gauge, Mallet tank
Does anyone know if there are drawings for a Württemberg Tssd narrow-gauge, Mallet tank?

I seem to recall seeing a photo of one in 7.25" gauge but now I want to find it I can't.

Many thanks,
John

Could you be thinking of Jacques Fecherolle's 7.25" gauge Mallet kits, of which there are quite a few in service over here. Just type in his name in GOOGLE, and his pages will reveal all (I think).
Best wishes

Nope, not those - though they look rather nice.
It was definitely a Tssd I saw a photo of. I checked out the Swiss Vapeur Parc but there's nothing on there, perhaps Sinsheim?

At one of the recent Karlsruhe shows one of the traders was indicating they were going to make the Class IV meyer 0-4-4-0 in 5". There have two of the Saxon Meyers made in 7 quarter. One of these was running on a large passenger train (10 coaches)without any effort. The drivers seat is on a frame bolted to the rear bufferbeam. I'm sure I put a photo up on the web site last year of it. I'm sure you have seen the wiki page at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C3%BCrttemberg_Tssd

Unfortunately I was at the Oschsle a couple of weeks ago 99633 is undergoing an overhaul.
Their web site is:http://oechsle-bahn.de/s9y_neu/
It might be worth emailing them to see if they have a source of drawings. They did have a range of books in the shop. One of the specialist book publishers does some in-depth articles about various classes there might be one for these. I will check at Karlsruhe show if I remember...
