Mardyke 7 /14" gauge petrol hydraulic Hymek

Mardyke 7 /14
I am currently nearing the end of the restoration of a Mardyke Hymek locomotive fitted with a petrol hydraulic transmission. When I purchased the loco in June 2013 it carried the name Temeraire. Can anyone provide information about the previous history of this locomotive ? I would particularly like to know when it was built, and to find out where it has operated throughout it's life.
Regards,
Colin.

Matt Rutherford will be able to help you with that, he's very knowledgeable on Mardyke locos. I'm not sure if he is a member of this society, but he can be found very easily on other fora.

Matt resigned a few years ago but if you log into "address book" at head of page it will give you his last known contact details which may be of help

If anyone manages to find a source of plans or details of something like the Mardyke Hymek I would be very interested in being added to the mail list for them. I wish to build something like this so a known design of a running loco would seems a good starting point.
