Mark Horovitz:

I think I found what might be your next Monorail Locomotive project:



An 0-1-0ST built to suit Rich Morris\'s extensive monorail trackage at Blaenau Ffestiniog.






For those of you not familiar with Mark's previous scratch built Live Steam Monorail Locomotive:

So it's a unicycle? Surely there must be a wheel fore or aft to prevent the need to balance carefully on the 1(!) wheel.

I think you'd call those counter wheels; mounted horizontally on the bottom loco (fore and aft, red bracket) and riding on the flange at the bottom of the monorail.

It looks like there are two men in the cab (top photo), one bent over and you can only see his back. Maybe that's how they keep it balanced - fireman and engineer. Where do they keep the coal? Under the seat?

These were the only two pictures of the loco.
